2012 Winning Poster designed by Jordan Weekes, Grade 4, Bishop Anstey Junior School, Trinidad.
Second Place Winner of the World Plumbing Council’s International Design Poster Competition and First Place Winner of Plumbing Solutions’ National Design Poster Competition.
As part of its school outreach programme, Plumbing Solutions extended an invitation to students from private primary schools in Trinidad to participate in the World Plumbing Council’s International Design Poster Competition. The posters were to be judged primarily for the message that World Plumbing Day represents – That Plumbing is vital to good health; the role that plumbing plays in our everyday life and the role that plumbing plays in the environmental issues. The artistic merit of the posters was secondary. The 81 posters were viewed by the staff at the American Society of Sanitary Engineering to choose the 10 best posters. These top ten posters were then put on display at the ASSE Mid-Year Board meetings for judging by the members present at the meeting.
We are pleased to announce that Jordan Weekes of Bishop Anstey Junior School received second place in the World Plumbing Council’s International Design Poster Competition out of 81 entries, and first place in Plumbing Solutions’ National Poster Design Competition.
On May 3rd, 2012 Plumbing Solutions Management and Staff attended the Bishop Anstey Junior School Assembly and presented to Jordan Weekes and his Principal, Ms. Tina Schuler prizes for his winning poster. Jordan received from the World Plumbing Council, $50 US Dollars, and his school received $500 US Dollars. Additionally, Plumbing Solutions presented to Jordan, $500 TT Dollars, and his school received $10,000 TT Dollars in plumbing supplies/services for the winning entry.
Plumbing Solutions congratulates Jordan Weekes and Bishop Anstey Junior School. We would like to thank all Teachers and Students for their participation in the design poster competition, and to those who were unable to participate in 2012 we look forward to your involvement in 2013.
