City of Ocala Water Conservation Art Competition

Home » Arts & Entertainment
Posted April 2, 2021 | Sponsored by Ocala Gazette

The Ocala Gazette partnered with the City of Ocala to raise awareness during Water Conservation Month. We invited Marion County Public Schools, private schools and home school associations to participate by showing us how they answer the question “Why is water conservation important?”

Winning artwork will be made into stickers that will be placed in the City of Ocala’s Water Recharge Park and the grand prize winner will have a sticker placed outside of The Marion Theatre.

Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to our winners!
