Water Smart® Contest

We need your help with the 2017 Water Smart® Contest. The purpose of the Contest is to spread the Society's Water Smart messages, which in turn will help save lives.

The Water Smart Contest is easy to do, you can implement it during Drowning Prevention Week, or offer it during a day camp, or have a special Water Smart® Contest day. It's flexible, and can be implemented in any way - whatever works best for your facility.

It's easy and doesn't require a lot of planning. You can give it to your summer staff as a fun summer project!
