West Basin Water is Life Art Contest 

Students in grades 3-12 called on to create “Water is Life” artwork by March 17th!

The West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) announced the launch of its 2023 Water is Life student art contest, and calls on local students to develop creative artwork that inspires water conservation in our communities. West Basin is accepting artwork submissions 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. 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.
