George Mason University's Arlington Campus will provide 25 Arlington Public Schools with a plain, fully constructed rain barrel to paint artistically. To sign up your school,
click the link below. The FREE rain barrels will be awarded first-come, first served.
One rain barrel per school.
The artistic rain barrels from the 25 participating schools will be displayed from April 15-21st at Mason's Founders Hall. The rain barrels will be judged and auctioned off
at Mason's "Earth Week Community Fair" at our Arlington Campus on Sunday,
April 21, 2013. The winning barrel designs will receive a cash prize donation
to their school PTA courtesy of Water Management, Inc. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Arlington County Council of PTAs' Scholarship Fund and Mason's Early Identification Program.
Get inspired! View samples of amazing artistic rain barrels like
those above from last year's Operation Rain Barrel!
