BELLEVILLE – Some pictures are worth a thousand words.
Now, they could be worth a total of $1,500 shared by three organizations via Illinois American Water’s “Value of Water” photo contest. The contest begins Tuesday, July 22, on the company’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ilamwater.
Illinois American Water invited 12 organizations, including Alton Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau, to submit photos and thoughts to depict what water service means to their organization and community. The photos will be posted to Illinois American Water’s Facebook page at http://bit.ly/1nanM8w.
The photo contest also aims to raise awareness about the role water service plays in daily lives, economic growth and fire protection.
The public can participate by voting for their favorite “Value of Water” photo beginning July 22 through Wednesday, Aug. 20. The three photos with the most votes will earn their organization $750 (first place), $500 (second place) and $250 (third place). The winners will be announced soon after the contest closes.
