With continuing toilet paper shortages and extra cleaning due to COVID-19, many people are flushing wipes down their toilets, causing clogs in the pipes and equipment at our wastewater treatment facilities!! We are calling on all Illinois residents to create a 30 second Public Service Announcement about what you should and shouldn’t flush down the toilet! The best video wins $500!
This is a great opportunity for the kids to do a fun project (and the parents, too) while learning about the importance of our sewer and water treatment infrastructure (and maybe win some cash too!)
If you are able and willing, it would be great for you to share the contest with your students (or you and your family could create a video!). below is the link to the contest and a list of the rules.
Create a Public Service Announcement telling folks what can and can’t be flushed down the toilet. You can create a news story, animation, commercial, comedy skit, music video, or theatrical masterpiece!
