Annual Student Art Contest


THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED! 
SUBMISSIONS FOR the 2020 water awareness calendar ARE NOW CLOSED.

 

“Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink”
~ Samuel Coleridge’s 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner'

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 freshwater 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 the WRD service area in Southern L.A. County. 

The Kindergarten through 6th Grade students who participate in the Annual WRD Student Art Contest help remind us that water, and groundwater in particular, is a precious resource that needs to be valued and protected. Winning submissions will be featured in the 2020 Water Awareness Calendar. This year's topics included: Groundwater, the Treasure Beneath Our Feet; Water Nerds are Water Heroes; and Save Water, Every Drop Counts.

Thank you to all the students, teachers, and parents who participated in this year’s contest! We will be announcing the winners shortly.
If you would like to see the winning art pieces on display, please visit our 13th Annual Groundwater Festival in May 2020 (more info at www.wrd.org/content/groundwater-festival).
