Their message is clear as the water they’re depicting: Student winners in the annual Water Awareness Poster Contest want everyone to help keep our rivers, lakes and oceans clean and unpolluted.

North County water agencies sponsor the poster contest as a conservation reminder to fourth-graders in public, private and home schools. The theme for this year’s contest was “Love Water, Save Water.” The top three posters from each district will help illustrate the 2023 North County water agencies calendars. Many of the posters are also viewable at each water district’s website.
