My Water Pledge - National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation - April 1-30, 2015,
Wyland Foundation NEW
My Water Pledge is a friendly competition (which costs nothing but your time) between Cities across the US to see who can be the most "water-wise". Mayors nationwide will challenge their residents to conserve water, energy and other natural resources on behalf of their City through a series of informative, easy-to-use pledges online.
Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category win. Cities will compete in the following population categories: 5,000-29,999, 30,000-99,999, 100,000-299,999, 300,000-599,999, and 600,000+. Participants in the winning Cities are eligible to win hundreds of prizes. By the way, your mayor doesn't have to participate for your City to win...but every person makes a difference! Last year, the challenge awarded more than $50,000 in prizes to nearly 1,000 residents in U.S. Cities.
