TWO LOCAL STUDENTS TO BE
INCLUDED IN METROPOLITAN WATER
DISTRICT’S 
2020 “WATER IS LIFE” CALENDAR
 

Commerce, CA – Two local students from the Central Basin (District) service area were selected to have their artwork featured in Metropolitan Water District’s (MWD) 2020 “Water is Life” calendar. The calendar is comprised of artwork with encouraging messaging from students in grades K-12 to use water efficiently by conserving more.

This year’s regional winners include a student from State School Elementary located in South Gate, along with a student from South East High School located in South Gate.

The winning students and their teachers and families participated in an annual celebratory event at MWD in December. The calendars will include artwork from other students across the region and will be distributed throughout Southern California.

“The District is so proud that two local students will have their artwork displayed in this regional calendar. The ‘Water is Life’ Poster Contest allows students to express the value of our most precious resource in a very creative way,” said Board President Robert Apodaca, “We would like to thank all of the students for their poster entries. It is inspiring to see our youth so captivated and engaged in water awareness.”  

The District, in partnership with MWD, holds the “Water is Life” Poster Contest every year during the spring. For more information about Central Basin and the poster contest, visit https://www.centralbasin.org/community/mwd_partnering_programs/water_is_life_poster_contest.
