The Livermore Water Awareness Poster Contest has helped elementary school students explore the importance of water conservation through art for more than 20 years. This annual contest is sponsored by Livermore Municipal Water, Cal Water, and Zone 7 Water Agency.
2021 Poster Contest Winners Selected
The theme of the 2021 poster contest was "Without Water, Life Would Be Pretty Dry." After narrowing down our finalists, the Livermore community had the opportunity to vote for their favorite artwork through an online poll. Over 800 votes were cast to select this year's winners. Visit our Flickr account to view this year's winning artwork. Congratulations to all students who participated!
If you have any questions about the Water Awareness Poster Contest, contact Natalie Croak, Communications Representative at (925) 960-8144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 2015, the City of Livermore Water Resources Division has proudly presented "One Water Awards" at the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District's Science Odyssey.
