Foothill Municipal Water District (Foothill MWD) is conducting its 6th annual K-12 student art contest with the theme of competition adhering to the phrase: “Water Is Life”. This is a fun, educational project that serves to inspire student creativity and the stewardship of precious water resources.

The contest is open to all K-12 students attending a school located within the Foothill MWD service area. This includes schools located within La Crescenta-Montrose, the City of La Cañada Flintridge, and Altadena.
All art entries for the 2017 “Water Is Life” Student Art Contest will be separated into three groups (Grades K-3, 4-6, and 7-12) prior to judging. The grand prize winning entry for each group will receive $100 for the student and a $50 gift card for the sponsoring teacher.

This event is co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) and all winning entries will be submitted to MWD for a second round of competition to be included in the 2018 “Water Is Life” Student Artwork Calendar.

Deadline for entries is Monday, April 3, 2017, including postmarked submissions. Late entries may be accepted at the discretion of Foothill MWD. For further information about the contest, including all rules, judging criteria, and other prizes, please visit and click on “Student Art Contest Information” on the main page.

Foothill Municipal Water District provides imported water to Crescenta Valley Water District, La Cañada Irrigation District, Mesa Crest Water Company, Valley Water Company, Lincoln Avenue Water Company, Las Flores Water Company and Rubio Cañon Land & Water Association. Kinneloa Irrigation District, another retail agency, takes no water from Foothill.
