Sacramento, Calif. – Jan. 20, 2014 – Beutler Air Conditioning & Plumbing is partnering with Project WET to bring the first-ever “Beutler Think Clean Contest” to the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD). The “Beutler Think Clean Contest” encourages students in grades K-12 to think about ways to conserve water in their local community. Water-saving ideas can be submitted in the form of a written essay, drawing or model, from January 20 through February 20, for a chance to win cash prizes.
“Our goal is to motivate our youth to think about the impact they can make on our environment and share those ideas with the community so we can start making changes here in Sacramento,” said Jim Anderberg, regional manager, Beutler Air Conditioning & Plumbing Sacramento.
Project WET, the joining force between Beutler and the SCUSD, is a nonprofit that focuses on reaching children, parents, teachers and community members with water education. Educating our youth on how to conserve water and keep it clean are key goals of the California Project WET program and critical to the future of our state. While many schools, homes and businesses are “going green,” the natural water sources in Sacramento still need attention to protect our future.
All SCUSD students, grades K-12, are encouraged to enter the “Beutler Think Clean Contest.” The contest is open to all ideas as to conserving water and keeping water clean. Entries can be submitted in the form of essays, models and drawings. The top three entries will be awarded with cash prizes; $250 to the first place winner, $150 to the second place winner and $100 to the third place winner. Additionally, Beutler is donating $50 to the SCUSD for every parent who signs up for a Beutler plumbing service before April 2014.
All entries must include a thorough explanation of the idea, the potential impact of the idea on the economy and/or community, and how the idea can be implemented throughout their community. Projects must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 1, 2014.
