Water and Energy Awareness Day
Welcome to the City of Gallup's 12th Annual McKinley Water & Energy Awareness Day page.  
We are excited this event once again gave critical environmental water education
 to our local City of Gallup and GMCS students. 

This year, we had a extremely successful event.  During 2016 we had 18 professional natural resource presenters who taught  900 Gallup Middle School students on the first day 5/10/16, and 450 fourth and fifth grade students on the second day 5/11/16,  assisted by 100+ Miyamura and Gallup High School Volunteer students.   We cannot thank our volunteers and Presenters enough for making the 12th Annual McKinley County Water & Energy Festival an interactive event that meets national educational benchmark standards for our local youth. 

2016 Water & Energy Awareness Day T-SHIRT Contest
All McKinley County 4th through 12th grade students were invited to enter our 2016 Water & Energy Awareness Day T-SHIRT Contest! as an ongoing promotional water-saving advertising campaign.  These students below earned awards for the First through Fifth place winners. 

2016 Water & Energy Awareness Day T-Shirt design contestants were from Miyamura & Gallup High School, who designed wonderful new logos.  We had over 100 students submit T-Shirt designs. The first-place design became the official McKinley County Water Awareness Day t-shirt logo to be worn and given to all attending volunteers.  
    Extra t-shirts were given to presenters and participating students.

We commend the artists who created and submitted fantastic 2016 Water & Energy Festival designs, they are amazingly creative!

By targeting students and instilling conservation habits in youth, we encourage students
to bring water education home to our Gallup families and surrounding communities,
which depend on the same aquifers as the city.
