West Basin’s Student Art Contest Now Open for Submissions

Students in Grades 3-12 to Create “Water is Life” Artwork by March 18th

Today the West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) announced the launch of its 2022 Water is Life student art contest and called on students in the service area to inspire water use efficiency with their creative designs. West Basin is accepting artwork submissions starting January 10 until the deadline on Friday, March 18, 2022 at 5PM. Contest information is available at www.westbasin.org/waterislife.

“The Water is Life student art contest is an opportunity for students to use their creativity to inspire and make a positive impact on the community. Illustrating the value of water, saving and efficiency as a lifestyle – and especially during this time of drought – is a valuable public service that our youth offer through this competition,” said West Basin Board President Harold C. Williams, MSCE, P.E.

This year, qualified teachers can request a free classroom art supply set (valued at $50) and an in-person or live online art lesson to support their students’ submission efforts. Limited art supply sets and art lessons are available.

Art lesson reservation instructions, and updated contest guidelines in English and Spanish are available online at www.westbasin.org/waterislife.

Fifteen student winners (one grand prize winner and four honorable mentions in each elementary, middle, and high school grade category) will be selected by a panel of judges in April 2022. Each winner is awarded a new Apple iPad, with Grand Prize winners additionally receiving a digital stylus pen and $25 Apple Store gift card.

The contest is a collaborative water education program in partnership between West Basin and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan). Winning artwork from West Basin’s local contest will advance to Metropolitan’s regional competition and may be featured in the agency’s 2023 student artwork calendar.
