LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – Time is ticking on an art contest for school children.

This would make a great “Cool At School” story for this Friday. Unfortunately that’s also the deadline for entering the contest.

It’s the stormwater pollution awareness poster contest for any K-6 student in Nevada.

Several organizations – including the Nevada Dept of Transportation – have come together to raise awareness about the fact that in Nevada, anything that goes down any storm drain goes directly into local waterways without treatment.

Thus, the 2 contest themes:

1. Only rain should go down storm drains -and-

2. Easy ways/everyday ways to prevent water pollution.

The winning posters will be featured in a 2022 calendar with the first-place poster as the cover.
