In 2015, the residents of Hot Springs rallied to earn the City a second-place finish in the 4th Annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. For 2021, the City hopes to do even better and win the 10th Annual event in the category for cities between 30,000 and 99,999.
In doing so, they will add to Hot Springs’ total pledge count and can nominate a charity in Hot Springs for a chance to win a Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Each participant will also be entered to win from thousands of eco-friendly prizes, including $3,000 toward their home utility bills, home irrigation makeovers and environmentally-friendly cleaning products. Only cities with the most residents making pledges will qualify for the more than $50,000 in prize drawings.
The annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, presented by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota, encourages residents across America to make small changes in their lives to better manage our water resources and improve the health of our ocean, lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands.
“It’s more important than ever to maintain smart habits that support the health of the world around us -- especially when it comes to our water and air,” said marine life artist and conservationist Robert Wyland. “If COVID has taught us anything, it’s that we can change behaviors for the benefit of everybody.”
