Conservation ​Pays​​ G​ame - Sponsorship Opportunity

We are requesting co-sponsors for the Broward Water Partnership’s Conservation Pays Game to be held February – April of 2019.  The Broward Water Partnership was established in 2011 as a means of promoting a regional water conservation ethic throughout Broward County. The County has 82% participation in this indoor water conservation program, which includes the Conservation Pays toilet rebate program. Over 12,000 rebates have been issued to date. That, combined with the distribution of over 25,000 free water saving devices, has led to nearly 2 billion gallons of water saved.


The Conservation Pays game promotes environmental stewardship and shows Broward residents how to save time and money and protect water through an online gaming tool. The tool asks residents to engage in the conversation, through a variety of activities that highlight issues of sustainability, conservation and climate change, which include: playing interactive games, completion of quizzes, attendance at local conservation events, visiting nature centers, identifying sustainability features, and taking selfies at various assigned locations. The co-sponsorship funds will provide incentives (prizes) for Broward residents to participate in the game. Ultimately, the sponsorship funds will also provide the grand prize: a complete home retrofit for one family which includes water and energy saving appliances and fixtures. 


Complete Sponsorship Package can be accessed here.
