Foothill Municipal Water District (Foothill) recently concluded its 6th 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.
The District received 115 total entries this year and the top 15 entries will be submitted to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) for further consideration to be included in the 2018 “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.
