RIALTO, CALIF. – West Valley Water District holds an annual water conservation poster contest to encourage students to use their creativity to illustrate the importance of water conservation. At the June 7 meeting of the Board of Directors, local elementary students were honored for their hard work and dedication to learning about water. Each winner received a certificate of recognition and a $75 gift card to Target.
Each year, the District invites local elementary schools within the District’s boundaries to participate in the annual contest. Over 200 posters were received from students in second to sixth grade. Posters were voted on by staff and the Board of Directors to select winners based on the theme, “How Can I Help Conserve Water?” Winning posters will be used in the District’s annual calendar that is distributed to WVWD customers and local schools.
“WVWD is proud of all the students who participated in this contest and congratulated the winning entries for the creativity in reflecting the critical importance of water conservation. This contest is a great opportunity to give back to the community as well as educate the public about water conservation measures, and I’m happy it was a success” President Young Said.
The annual water conservation poster contest, along with WVWD’s other education programs, help educate younger generations on the importance of water use and conservation.
