CONTEST RULES
Water is Life!
The Water Replenishment District needs your creativity to spread the word on water in our Water Awareness Calendar.

WRD WATER AWARENESS CALENDAR
The "Blue Planet" we call home is named for the vast amount of water that covers it. Yet, of all this plentiful liquid, only a fraction is usable as fresh water by humans for drinking, growing, washing, and cooking. In an urban region with 4 million residents and only 14 inches of average annual rainfall, it's a continual challenge to meet the water demands of southern Los Angeles County. The WRD Water Awareness Calendar helps educate people about the importance of water and the role they can play in water conservation every day by changing their habits at home and at school.

SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2022 CALENDAR WILL OPEN IN THE SUMMER OF 2021. SEE THE DIRECTIONS FROM LAST YEAR AND CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES IN JULY 2021. GOOD LUCK!
