2019 MWDOC Water Awareness Poster Contest now accepting submissions

The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) is now accepting student entries for the 2019 Water Awareness Poster Contest. The contest challenges students to demonstrate their water knowledge through the creation of original artwork. This year’s contest theme is: “Water is Life.”

For more than 30 years, participation in the Water Awareness Poster Contest has encouraged Orange County students to take a closer look at our most precious natural resource – water – and discover for themselves how access to clean, fresh drinking water improves our daily lives.

The contest is open to all Orange County students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. MWDOC receives nearly one thousand entries each year from students across the county, and from these entries, 40 winners are selected and recognized at an annual awards ceremony held at the Discovery Cube in Santa Ana.

From the 40 winning posters recognized, five will be submitted to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s (Metropolitan) regional poster contest. Winners of this Southern California competition will earn a spot in Metropolitan’s annual “Water Is Life” calendar, and will also have their artwork on display throughout the region as part of a Metropolitan coordinated traveling art exhibit.

The deadline to submit entries for the 2019 Water Awareness Poster Contest is April 5. Contest rules can be found at: www.mwdoc.com/postercontest.
