Help your local village earn cash for their scholarship funds by simply pledging to turn off your sprinkler system for the winter (October 15 - April 15). The village earns one point for each pledge, and the village with the most points receives a cash award. You can pledge as early as August 15 and as late as April 15, but additional points are awarded for early pledges. Pledge between now and 31st and we get 2 points. Pledge between January 1 and April 15 and we get 1 point. Only one pledge per household. You also do not need to have an automated sprinkler system to take the pledge. Simply pledge to not water your lawn during the challenge duration.

You play an important part in conserving our community’s water. Access to that precious commodity is becoming more constrained as our population grows. Conserving water helps to reduce the need to drill more wells and avoid further strain on existing water sources. One of the easiest ways to reduce water use is to turn automated irrigation systems OFF from October 15 through April 15. Besides saving water, when not irrigated during cooler months, turf grass goes dormant on top and the root system grows deeper and stronger. It will emerge healthier in the spring, and you’ll have reduced the need to apply chemicals!
