THE WYLAND NATIONAL MAYOR’S CHALLENGE
FOR WATER CONSERVATION APRIL 2018
The Seventh Annual National Mayorʼs Challenge for Water Conservation is a friendly non-profit competition between cities across the country, April 1-30, 2018, that uses a series of online pledges (mywaterpledge.com) to see which city can be the most water wise. In addition to individual reductions in water consumption, energy use, and pollution, residents can save money, help their city meet conservation goals — and earn a chance to win any of hundreds of great prizes — including a Grand Prize $5,000 toward their Home Utility Bills, home irrigation kits, home improvement store gift cards, and more. Plus, a deserving charity will receive a 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid for its organization. Cities compete in the following population categories: 5,000-29,999 residents, 30,000-99,999 residents, 100,000-299,999 residents, 300,000-599,999 residents, and 600,000+ residents. Winning cities are the cities with the highest percentage of residents participating in the Challenge. Residents from the winning cities will be entered to win thousands of dollars in eco-friendly prizes.
Please join Mayor Vandersteen in pledging to reducing Sheboygan’s water consumption and energy use. It takes only a minute and there is no fee to make a pledge or participate, so go to MyWaterPledge.com during the April 1-30, 2018 entry period. (Note: Pledges must be made during the April 1-30, 2018 entry period in order to be counted toward the 2018 sweepstakes.)
