2012 Water Conservation Poster Contest Winners

Young artists communicate the importance of responsible management and use of water - our most precious resource

Water Conservation Poster Contest: All first- through sixth-grade students attending an Anaheim public or private elementary school were invited to participate in the Department’s 21st annual water conservation poster contest. During Water Awareness Month, eighteen winners (first-, second- and third-place winners at each grade level) will receive trophies during a pre-game ceremony at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.  This year, the ceremony will be on May 16th, prior to the Angels-White Sox game.

Congratulations to the outstanding young artists listed below along with an image of their winning posters. Each year Anaheim Public Utilities hosts the annual water conservation poster contest as part of the celebration of May as Water Awareness Month in California. First through sixth graders are invited to create colorful posters depicting key water conservation messages. Three winners are selected from each grade. Winning posters are displayed in the lobby of Anaheim West Tower and trophies are presented at a ceremony prior to an Anaheim Angels baseball game. First place winners also receive a $100 savings bond.

Congratulations to all of the winners and participants for their great ideas and creative execution.
