2024 Art Contest Submission

2024 Art contest theme

The theme of the 2024 digital student art calendar contest: “Being Water Wise Is…,” relates to the stewardship and conservation of our precious natural resource, water. This means wise and efficient water use inside and outside of the home, at school, in the community, in business and industry, in agriculture, and in recreation. The importance of clean and reliable water to public health has been made even more clear this past year. Additionally, climate change is already stressing Southern California’s water supplies. Every watershed that the Southland depends on, from the Colorado River to the Sierra Nevada, to our own groundwater basins, is becoming less reliable. This theme of water conservation and stewardship should be reflected in the artwork.
