The Ministry of Water Resources (MoWR) has joined hands with the Ministry of Power to announce a painting competition on Water Conservation. This competition will be conducted on the parameters similar to the ongoing competition of Bureau of Energy Efficiency to hunt for India’s Energy Efficiency Star. The method of participation and other modalities will remain the same.

The Ministry of Water Resources is responsible for laying down policy guidelines and programmes for the development and regulation of country’s water resources. And this step has been taken to raise awareness and seriousness among the young generation about the importance of water conservation and issues that the nation as a whole is facing at present.

The themes selected for the painting competition are as follows:

  1. Water Conservation
  2. Effective Use of Water
  3. Preventing Wastage of Water

The competition is being held at the School, State and National Level and the last date of submission is October 12, 2010. Each school is asked to organize and send two best paintings and send them to the Nodal Official address of their respective State/UT. The first, second and third prize winners from each State/UT will be invited to Delhi to participate in the National Level Painting competition to be held on January 21, 2011. Each participating student at the national level will be paid a sum of Rs. 1000/- as incidentals and will be given a certificate of participation.

The paintings selected at school level as well as state and final national level will be the sole property of the Ministry of Water Resources. The Ministry holds the right to use it for any purpose it considers appropriate in future. So, go ahead, pick up your brush and paint to save WATER – “Our lifeline”.
