The annual Student Art Contest is for all 3rd, 4th, 5th, middle school, and high school students attending schools in the District’s service area. Utilizing the theme “Water is Life,” students are given the opportunity to demonstrate their artistic abilities while learning about the importance of water in our lives.
The theme can be portrayed as wise and efficient water use inside and outside of the home, at school, in the community, in business and industry, in agriculture, and in recreation. The importance of clean and reliable water to public health has been made even more clear over the past few years. Additionally, climate change is stressing Southern California’s water supplies and we need to adapt. This theme of water conservation and stewardship should be reflected in the artwork.
