Students Beautify Storm Drains In The County To Promote Watershed Health

More storm drains across the County got some makeovers recently as three new winners were announced for the 2nd Annual Storm Drain Art Contest.

The contest, hosted by the Forsyth County Department of Water & Sewer and Keep Forsyth County Beautiful, called for current Forsyth County Schools students to submit original artwork that both beautifies and raises awareness for watershed health in the County, enhancing the theme Only Rain Goes Down the Drain.

Akshata Joshi (South Forsyth Middle School) – “Stop litter”


Abby Hudson (Piney Grove Middle School) – “The fish and the flowers”


Vidhi Mehta (South Forsyth High School) – “Don’t let animals get a taste of waste”


The three contest winners received $100 in compensation for their work, certificates of recognition and have painted their designs on designated storm drains at their schools, highlighting the importance of watershed health and keeping the waterways of Forsyth County clean.

“The 2nd Annual Storm Drain Art Contest is a unique partnership between Forsyth County Water & Sewer Department and Keep Forsyth County Beautiful that seeks to educate the public about watershed health,” said Manager of Environmental Programs Tammy Wright. “This year, three new students had their artwork selected based on how well it enhanced the theme, ‘Only Rain Goes Down the Drain’. Together we are working to keep contaminants out of the rivers, lakes and streams in Forsyth County.”
