Poster Contest
Each year, RCWD sponsors a poster contest for students in grades K-5. This year's theme, "Get SAVVY about Water Conservation," gives budding artists the chance to illustrate the importance of water conservation. The winning students, as well as their teachers, are honored at awards ceremonies throughout our service area. Of the winning posters, the top five posters are submitted to The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California in Los Angeles for consideration and a possible spot on the WATER IS LIFE calendar. This contest is open to students between kindergarten and fifth grade only.
