Water Friendly Schools Challenge

Join our Water Friendly Challenge in 2019!

Our Water Friendly Schools Challenge provides opportunities and recognition for schools promoting water in 2019.

It forms part of our broader Water Friendly Challenge which – as well as schools – is aimed at sports venues and workplaces.

Teachers, students and school communities are invited to get involved in activities that promote water as the drink of choice. Youth-led initiatives are also encouraged.

All schools (primary and secondary, government and non-government) within the local government areas of Darebin, Banyule and Nillumbik are eligible to participate.


Participating schools have the chance to win prizes for their school, including a Water Bubbler and Drink Refill Station. Prizes are also awarded as part of the our Student Poster and Video competition and the Rethink Your Drink Critics Choice Awards.

How to get involved:

  1. Let us know you are planning on being Water Friendly at your school in 2019: please register here.
  2. Be a Water Friendly school throughout 2019: a range of activities, competitions and support is available! For ideas, please visit our Water Friendly Schools page.
  3. Submit your entry: in 500 words or less, tell us what you’ve done to be a Water Friendly School in 2019. To go in the draw, submit your entry via our online form. Entries close 1 November 2019. Accompanying attachments e.g. photos or relevant documents are welcomed, but not essential.
  4. Join the celebration! Celebrations will be organised in consultation with participating schools in Term 4 (or at a suitable time).
