In celebration of Water Awareness Month in California, Pasadena Water and Power invites students in grades kindergarten through 12 to submit self-designed posters based on the theme “Water Is Life.”
All students who attend public or private schools in Pasadena, or who live within the boundaries of the PWP service area, are eligible.
Judges will select winning poster art based on originality, visual and word clarity, and relevance to the water conservation theme.
The first-place winner in the kindergarten to grade 5 category will receive a voucher for one class at Armory Center for the Arts, a $120 value; the winner for grades 6 to 8 will be presented with a $120 gift certificate for art supplies; and the winner for grades 9 to 12 will receive a $120 gift certificate for art supplies.
The top five entries from each age group will be recognized on a PWP website dedicated to the poster art contest and will advance to the Metropolitan Water District poster art contest with the same theme.
Art must be submitted no later than Monday, June 6; winners will be announced Friday, June 10.
More information, including contest rules and permission forms, is available at www.cityofpasadena.net/waterandpower/artcontest or by calling (626) 744-3715.
