    West Basin Launches Water is life Art Contest for Students

    West Basin Municipal Water District announced the launch of its 2023 Water is Life student art contest and calls on local students to develop creative artwork that inspire water conservation in our communities. West Basin is accepting artwork submissions from grades 3-12, starting January 10, until the deadline on Friday, March 17, 2023, at 5PM. Contest information is available at www.westbasin.org/waterislife.

    “As historic drought conditions persist for a fourth year, West Basin calls on all student artists to think about the importance of our precious and limited water supply. We look forward to seeing students’ beautiful artwork and renewing our inspiration to conserve water,” said West Basin Board President Donald L. Dear.

    This year, qualified teachers can request a free classroom art supply set (valued at $80) 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 form, art supply set request form, 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 2023. 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 the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan). Winning artwork from the local contest will advance to Metropolitan’s regional competition and may be featured in the agency’s 2024 student artwork calendar.
