NDOT launches ‘Love NV Waters’ drawing contest

In an effort to raise awareness with children about the importance of stormwater pollution prevention, the Nevada Department of Transportation stormwater program is holding a drawing contest for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

“Water is a precious resource in Nevada and we can all do our part to help protect it,” said David Gaskin, NDOT deputy director. “We wanted to have some fun with our new campaign and include Nevada schoolchildren.”

Winners will become published artists, with the first-place student’s artwork featured on the cover of the 2017 NDOT stormwater program brochure, and the second- and third-place students’ artwork featured inside of the brochure.

All artwork meeting contest requirements will be shared on the NDOT @loveNVwaters social media pages. Artwork in the “Love NV Waters” contest will be judged on creativity and artistry in depicting the student’s favorite activity at their favorite Nevada lake or river and/or showing an activity people can do to help prevent stormwater runoff pollution.

Examples and an educational video are available at Information, entry and release forms can be found at

Submissions must be received by Nov. 7 and winners will be announced via email and on the Love NV Waters website on Nov. 14.
