Metropolitan Water District 2015 Student Art Contest Winners! (Nov 19, 2015)
Monte Vista Water District has conducted an annual "Water is Life" ARt Poster Contest since 2002 for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade that attend schools located within the District's service area. Winners in several grade categories are selected by District staff and members of the Board of Directors.
The Winning enteries of the District's contest are entered in another regional contest conducted by Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) which selects approximately 36 winning posters from several hundred entries submitted by MWD members and retail water agencies located within six counties. The winning art posters in this contest are reproduced for inclusion in a brightly colored 12-month calendar. The student winners in the MWD contest are invited to attend a special recognition event held in early December at its headquarters in Los Angeles.
Students are invited to create an art poster depicting various water uses and/or "wise" water use/conservation including: inside or outside the home, recreation, using drought-tolerant plants, use of efficient irrigation systems.
