LOCAL STUDENTS RECOGNIZED FOR
“WATER IS LIFE” THEMED ARTWORK AT
CENTRAL BASIN BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING

Commerce, CA – Five local students from the Central Basin service area were recognized for the 2019 Water Is Life Poster Contest at the June Board of Directors meeting. The Water Is Life Poster Contest is a partnership between the Central Basin Municipal Water District and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to highlight student art during Water Awareness Month. The poster contest serves as an opportunity for students throughout the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s service area to promote conservation through art.

“The District is proud to recognize each of these students for their outstanding works of art”, said Board President Robert Apodaca. “The Water Is Life Poster Contest is a valuable opportunity to educate and engage our students on the importance of water and their important role in conserving this precious resource.”

This year, the District chose to recognize five students for their engaging use of art to communicate the importance of water to our livelihood and environment. The students recognized were:

  • Priscilla Parra, State Street Elementary School (K – 5th Grade Category)
  • Allison Parra, State Street Elementary School (5th – 8th Grade Category)
  • Emily Caamal, South East High School (High School Category)
  • Catherine Parra, State Street Elementary School (Honorable Mention)
  • Chelsy Auna, South East High School (Honorable Mention) 

All of the student’s posters have been submitted to the Metropolitan Water District for potential inclusion in their “Water Is Life” Calendar, which will be distributed throughout Southern California.
