SMITH Mag's earthy friends over at TreeHugger have been devoting lots of virtual space lately to exploring our oceans and waterways in their month-long feature, Blue August. That got me thinking about a Six-Word Challenge about one of summer's treats and earth's increasingly rare resources: water. Whether your half-dozen well-chosen words are about water worries ("Save water, shower with a friend") or the joys of jumping into the deep blue sea ("Oldster surfing: Call it 'Gray Crush'"), we want your six words on water. Three winners will receive a Spreadshirt tee that shows off their six wet words.
The contest ends on August 31 (5pm est), and winners will be announced on September 8.
