Water Awareness Poster Contest

Colored Pencils

The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) is pleased to announce the 2020 Water Awareness Poster Contest!  The Contest provides a wonderful opportunity for children and young adults to learn about the importance of water while using art to express their ideas. All artwork should reflect this year’s contest theme: Water Is Life. This theme was chosen to get students thinking about our most valuable natural resource – water – and how vital it is for our way of life. 

A total of 40 winners will be selected in the Poster Contest. One grand prize winner in grades K - 2nd, 3rd – 5th, 6th – 8th, and 9th – 12th, will receive an iPad Mini! Additionally, teachers who submit their students’ artwork as a batch will be entered in a drawing for a class pizza party with Ricky Raindrop!  All 40 winners – and their parents and teachers – will be invited to attend a special Awards Ceremony with Ricky Raindrop at the Discovery Science Center.  

Deadline: April 3, 2020

  • Open to all Orange County students in grades K-12.
  • Posters must be drawn horizontally on 8.5 x 11 in.or 12 x 18 in. paper. Paper available upon request.
