The Plumbers Cape Town scholarship was created to raise awareness on water conservation in both residential and commercial applications.

Water conservation has never been more important. Access to fresh water for our day-to-day needs is scarce and a crisis waiting to happen. The world is always on the lookout for more ways to manage their water consumption to help protect this precious resource.

How to Enter

With the recent Cape Town Water Crisis, it’s essential for residents to conserve water. This year’s essay topic covers this essential question – how can people save more water every day?

Applicants should spend time researching new and innovative ways that residents can conserve water. The greater Cape Town area has around 3.7 million residents. What can every resident could do that would significantly cut our water consumption?

With the looming idea of Day Zero, when all citizens would have to shut off their water supplies, how can residents live off of a limited amount of water? Consider the variety of people that live in the area, from an individual to a large family.

Your essay should be 500 to 800 words long and submitted using the form found below by September 1, of this year.
