Perris, CA (May 30, 2019) — Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) is hosting a student artwork exhibit from June 4-11, 2019, which includes three dozen award winning pieces from throughout Southern California.

Each year, The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) hosts the “Water is Life” student art contest through education programs offered by local water agencies. The winning artwork from throughout MWD’s service area is used in an annual calendar and becomes part of a traveling art show.

The winning students from EMWD’s service area are:

“EMWD is proud to be a leader in bringing water education into the classrooms, and the artwork produced by these talented students is inspiring,” EMWD President Ron Sullivan said. “It is vital that we continue to educate the next generation as to the importance of using water wisely, and the poster art contest provides a creative avenue in doing so.”
