“Water is Life” Contest Winners

Two Madrid Middle School Art Students Named Winners in Water District’s “Water is Life” Poster Contest

The Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District (Upper District) recently sponsored its annual “Water is Life” art contest for students throughout the San Gabriel Valley.  All eligible entries were displayed during an Upper District Board meeting where Board members, staff, and public attendees voted for their top five choices in the grade level categories.  Two Mountain View School District student artists from Madrid Middle School had their art pieces selected and will be recognized at an Upper District’s Board of Director’s meeting in early June. 

      The award winning artists are 8th grade students in Sue Parszik’s art class at Madrid.  Alexis Garcia was named a 1st place winner and Janessa Guerrero was awarded 3rd place in the 6th-8th grade category.  Garcia’s award includes $150 cash prize and Guerrero will receive $75.

      The Upper District sponsors the annual contest to encourage youth to express the value of water through their artwork.  The Upper District Board believes a picture can be worth a thousand words when trying to convey how precious water really is to our lives. Through their artwork, students remind us to consider how we use water today and to think about whether there will be water available for their future.

       Garcia and Guerrero were both excited to learn their posters were selected as winners in the contest.  They know the importance of conserving water, especially during these times of drought and hope their artwork inspires people to do their part to conserve and keep our water ways clean.
