The "Paint the Rain" rain barrel decorating contest is a contest for high schools throughout Berks County (public, private, charter, home school, etc.) to artistically paint Berks County Conservation District (BCCD) rain barrels.
The Berks County Conservation District provided each participating class or school club with one rain barrel, a gift card for $25 (to help with the cost of painting supplies), and an in-classroom presentation/technical support visit from the Berks County Conservation District to explain the purpose of water conservation and source water protection.
First, second, and third place teams will each get a gift card for their team, class, and/or school and a certificate of recognition from the Berks County Commissioners.
The rain barrels are “auctioned” off to interested individuals, with proceeds going to the Berks County Conservation District Scholarship fund, which supports students interested in majoring in environmental education in college.
