Toho Water Authority has kicked off its annual Drop Savers Calendar Contest. Students in grades K-12 are encouraged to create an 8.5” x 11” poster depicting a water conservation idea. The contest is open to Osceola and Polk County schools who are within Toho’s service area. The contest allows students to promote water awareness and the importance of water conservation in their daily routines.
