Pasadena Water & Power

Student Art Contest

 Art Contest Collage 

Multiple years of drought have lead to a historic water shortage in California and Pasadena Water and Power invites students to celebrate the importance of using water wisely. 

The overarching theme for the student art calendar contest is "Water is Life" as it relates to the environmental stewardship and conservation of water. We encourage students to let us know how they do their part to be efficient and water-wise both inside and outside of the home.
