“Water Is Life” Student Art Contest Winners Selected
Foothill Municipal Water District (Foothill) recently concluded its 8th annual “Water Is Life” student art competition.
The contest was open to all students, in grades K-12, attending a school located within the service area of a member water agency that Foothill serves. This includes schools primarily located within La Crescenta-Montrose, La Cañada Flintridge, and Altadena.
Foothill narrowed down submissions to the top 10 entries, which will be submitted to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) for further consideration to be included in the 2020 “Water Is Life” student art calendar. Winners will be selected in the fall and honored at a student art exhibit and recognition event sponsored by MWD. Criteria for judging the art pieces consisted of addressing the theme of the contest, originality of the piece and slogan, and degree of visual and word clarity.
On May 20, 2019, the top entries received recognition through a Foothill Board of Directors Meeting. Students received prizes including gift certificates for their accomplishments. The top 10 entries are as follows:
