Irvine Student Wins Countywide Water Art Contest

An Irvine student is one of the grand prize winners of the Annual Water Awareness Poster Contest sponsored by the Municipal Water District of Orange County. This year’s theme was “Finding Water.”

Ruoying Li, a ninth-grade student at Tarbut V’Torah, took the grand prize for her age category. Her artwork was a dramatic hourglass: bright and colorful on top but arid and bleak at the bottom.

Li won an iPad mini for taking her category. Judging was conducted publicly online, with more than 1,700 votes cast among all of the entries.

More than 1,000 entries were received from students in grades one through 12 throughout Orange County.

Thirteen more students in the IRWD service area received honors from MWDOC:

Sarah Alkatib, grade 5, Stonegate Elementary School
Evelyn Bekker, grade 4, Santiago Hills Elementary School
Alex Brucher, grade 6, Westpark Elementary School
Lisa Cho, grade 4, University Park Elementary School
Raunak Das, grade 1, Portola Springs Elementary School
Macy Gaudiano, grade 2, Alderwood Elementary School
Isabella Jew, grade 2, College Park Elementary School
Francis Kim, grade 1, Woodbury Elementary School
Shivani Kulkarni, grade 10, Northwood High School
Cara Anne Liao, grade 1, Turtle Rock Elementary School
Medha Mohankumar, grade 6, Aspire Art Studios
Sanjana Ramakrishnan, grade 6, Brywood Elementary School
