DC Water Recruits New Mascot
DC Water has been holding tryouts to be Wendy/Wendell the Water Drop mascot.
DC Water rebranded itself from DC WASA in 2010 and has held a series of auditions trying to find a new ambassador in the form of a mascot: Wendy/Wendell the Water Drop.
"The Water Drop has become a popular ambassador for DC Water, by engaging and entertaining children and adults at DC Water-sponsored activities and various public outreach events across the District," DC Water General Manager George S. Hawkins said in a press release.
Calls for tryouts said the agency is looking for "energetic and versatile individuals" with flexible schedules and reliable transportation. The part time position is paid. The last set of auditions was Friday.
Judges in the form of DC Water Staff were tasked with evaluating candidates for their "agility, animation and charisma," according to a press release.
"We are taking these auditions seriously, while having a little fun," Hawkins said.
Has the switch to DC Water and other "rebranding" efforts impacted the way you view the District's water and waste management agency?
