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. 

Contest Information and Rules:    ANY Seminole County Public School student attending an elementary or middle school is eligible to participate.  There will be a best design prize for middle (Grades 6-8) and elementary (Grades K-2 and 3-5) school students.  Not just limited to ART students.  School wide participation is encouraged.  This project does not have to be done at school.  It may be completed at home.  Submitted posters and material become the property of Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. and will not be returned.  Only winning posters will be returned to the students.  All winning posters will be photographed and posted to Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. Facebook & website pages.  In the elementary planners, we have included the contest information as well as the paper to complete the poster in the center of the planner.  Your school can get supplies at Tools 4 Seminole Schools.  Get your supplies while they last.  Supplies include but are not limited to poster board, white drawing or construction paper, crayons, etc.

RULES ADDENDUM: As we navigate through these unprecedented times, we want to make sure that every student in the Seminole County school system has the same opportunity to participate in our poster contest so we are making a few changes to standard rules and regulations.  Please note that none of the changes we have made will affect your chance of winning, we want everyone represented equally.  Changes are as follows: 

  • Posters can be submitted digitally.  The sizing and content rules still apply.  You can take a photo of your completed poster and send along with a photo of your permission slip to wpd@modernpi.com
  • Posters can also be dropped off at your school (if you have chosen Face to Face, Hybrid or Seminole Connect) and we will have a representative stop by the school at contest end (end of February) for poster pickup.
  • Because the virtual school choice is not affiliated with any brick and mortar school, the “school” prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards will go to The Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools to be used for their general fund.
  • Only brick and mortar schools can win the most qualified entry prize.  We will track the number of entries submitted both digitally and in hard copy for the learning choices of Face to Face, Hybrid and Seminole Connect.
  • On your permission slip, please enter what school you are affiliated with if you have selected Face to Face, Hybrid or Seminole Connect learning options.  If you have chosen to enroll virtually, then Virtual will be the name of your school.
  • Digital entries
    • Must be a high quality photo
    • If it is a 3-D type of entry, please take a side photo as well
