World Plumbing Day

2018 World Plumbing Day Poster Contest

Presented by Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. in partnership with
Seminole County Public Schools

 

Who is Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc.? Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. is a family owned and operated
company offering full residential and commercial plumbing services since 1975. The owners went to Seminole
County Public Schools, have resided in Seminole County for 40+ years and feel a need to give back to students
of the County. Just as important, we hope to raise awareness about plumbing and its importance in society.
Good luck to everyone who participates!

What is World Plumbing Day? World Plumbing Day is designed to raise awareness about the important role
plumbing plays in our society. We take many things for granted such as clean drinking water, flushing toilets
and showers. Many developing countries have simplistic or non-existent plumbing. Over a billion people do
not have access to safe water supplies, sanitation and millions die each year from water related illnesses.
World Plumbing Day is a way to highlight the important role of the plumbing industry. World Plumbing Day is
an international event on March 11, initiated by the World Plumbing Council (WPC), celebrating the important
role plumbing plays in protecting the health and safety of society. Visit www.worldplumbingday.org to learn
more about how this day is being celebrated globally.
