Winners of Illinois American Water art contest announced

BELLEVILLE, IL (KFVS) -

Illinois American Water has announced the winners of its annual "Imagine a Day Without Water" art contest. The contest was offered to third, fourth, and fifth grade classroom's in the company's service area. Held in conjunction with the Value of Water Coalition's "Imagine a Day Without Water" event, the contest is meant to raise awareness about the value of water service. 

“It’s hard to imagine even just one day without water. We need water to make our morning coffee, to cook family dinners, to fight fires, for public health and more. Even though water service is essential, the public often takes its value for granted,” said Bruce Hauk, president of Illinois American Water. “We want to thank our local educators for taking time to talk to their students about the value of water. Our team was impressed with the number and quality of entries received from across the state.”
