Infographic Contest (Grades 6-12)

Chino Basin Water Conservation District educates our community about where our water comes from and why it is important to conserve this valuable resource.  We are always looking for creative new ways to teach our community about our water resources and need your help!  

Create and submit infographics (What's an Infographic?) to communicate where our water comes from and how to conserve. Review the challenges below. Feel free to respond to one, two, or all challenges in your submission! 

 Win between $100 to $250! See more info in our guidelines. Winning submissions will be highlighted on our website and social media!

Contest Options

OPTION 1:  Create an infographic to teach our community how the Chino Groundwater Basin (CGB) is recharged. Review the information provided in Dataset 1 and "Our Water Resources". Explore the map below. 

OPTION 2:  Why and how should we conserve water now to ensure that we can meet future needs? Create an infographic to show your water conservation recommendations for how we can adjust our water use to meet growing demands.   Review the information provided in Dataset 2 to consider the population and water use patterns over the past five years.
 

OPTION 3:  How does your Water Footprint compare before and after incorporating water saving strategies into your lifestyle?  Prepare an engaging infographic to illustrate and share your findings and water conservation recommendations. Use the Water Footprint Calculator (watercalculator.org) to determine how much water you use every day.  On the results page, scroll down to see your responses and identify which of your activities use the most water.  From there, adjust some of your responses to see how reducing the amount of water used in these activities changes your overall water use.
