Water is California’s most precious natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future.

It’s easy for all Californians—young and old—to save water every day. Harness the creativity of your 4th and 5th grade students while fulfilling state standards. Students are invited to invent fun and unique ways to reduce water use and illustrate their best idea with an original poster design.

The contest aimed to educate students about the serious matter of California’s drought, and to help raise awareness of everyday water conservation practices through the arts and creativity. All California students in 4th and 5th grade are eligible to participate and win prizes! The contest is currently closed.
