The New York City Department of Environmental Protection is pleased to announce its 27th Water Resources Art and Poetry Contest.  Students in grades 2-12 can submit photographs, digital art, and video in addition to other forms of artwork and poetry that creatively expresses and understanding of, an appreciation for, water.  All submissions will be accepted from now through March 1, 2013. We hope that you and your students will participate.   We have streamlined the process from last year so I think that you will be pleased with the changes for 2013.
