Annual Water Awareness Poster Contest

Sponsored by the Irvine Ranch Water District

Every year, IRWD hosts a poster contest for students in grades kindergarten through 12th. Students are asked to create a poster that shows how to use water wisely at home, school, business or in agriculture, or show how saving water can help the environment.

Winning posters will be submitted to regional competitions – first to the Municipal Water District of Orange County and then select entries will be submitted to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, where winners are then chosen to be part of the following year's water awareness student art calendar. (See the 2023 calendar.

Posters will be selected based on the originality and clarity of the message as well as the artistic level and the overall uniqueness. The posters will be judged within grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12, so everyone has a chance to win!
