Water is Life! Art Contest

Paint Brush

Our organization began with a mission to bring safe drinking water to low-income, rural residents of Virginia’s Roanoke Valley. While we are now responsible for much more than only water, it is still a very important part of the work we do at SERCAP.

Our 2019 Water is Life! Art Contest has begun! Students in the Third, Fourth, and Fifth grades throughout our seven-state region are welcome to submit any medium of art--painting, drawing, sculpture, etc--depicting “How Water Makes My Life Better.”

Art gives us an opportunity to communicate big, complex ideas in a universal language. Hosting an annual art contest introduces young minds to the importance of SERCAP’s work, and alerts them to the needs of those within their communities. They can connect to a large issue in a way that is understandable and means something to them, which builds empathy. It can stir up in them a desire to help, to fix, to change the world.

Today’s elementary school students are tomorrow’s elected officials, nonprofit CEOs, and voting citizens. By learning the importance of clean water access, these students may very well grow into leaders who fulfill SERCAP’s mission of clean & accessible water for all.

The deadline to submit is November 2, 2018. Please see the guidelines below for more details. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Shannon Watts at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thank you!

Schools may mail hard copies of the artwork to the SERCAP office, email pictures of the artwork to the State Manager's email address below, or contact the State Manager about picking up the artwork.

Awards will be distributed prior to SERCAP's 50th Anniversary celebration in April 2019.
