The Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) Board of Directors recognized 15 local students for their winning contributions to the 2021-22 ‘Water Is Life’ poster contest. The annual contest provides an opportunity for students to creatively express important conservation messages through art.

More than 3,200 students, ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade, participated in the 2021-22 Water Is Life contest, representing 18 schools from Lake Elsinore Unified School District, Menifee Union School District, Murrieta Valley Unified School District, and local charter schools. P

“Celebrating our student’s talents, ingenuity, and insight is an honor,” EVMWD President Darcy Burke said. “Their art communicates water’s importance in their communities, their environment, as well as in their homes. EVMWD supports the ‘Water is Life’ contest and other educational efforts, which foster water resource stewardship, water-use efficiency, and watershed management.”

Family members, teachers, and EVMWD staff celebrated the student artists during a special ceremony held at EVMWD headquarters. Students received trophies and prizes. As a token of appreciation, the teachers received gift cards for classroom essentials.

Several winning entries will be submitted to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California for a chance to be featured in the regional “Water Is Life” calendar for 2023.
