Water Authority honors winning students in contests

The San Diego County Water Authority recently honored winners of two student competitions – the Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair for middle and high school students, and the Be Water Sm“Art” Essay Contest for elementary school students.

Each year, more than 10,000 students from around the county in grades seven through 12 participate in the Science Fair. About 900 are selected to participate in final judging in Balboa Park, and the Water Authority reviews all water-related projects.

This year’s local science fair winners include:

Junior Division (Grades 6-8)

First Place: Mauricio Wulfovich, San Diego Jewish Academy in San Diego

Senior Division (Grades 9-12)

First Place: Preetam Soundararajan, Francis Parker School in San Diego

Second Place: Ari Colton and Matan Kaminski, San Diego Jewish Academy in San Diego

On May 5, the Water Authority honored the winners of its art and essay contest for elementary school students with a ceremony at Sea World for the students, their families and teachers.  Contest participants wrote an essay on the topic “Being Water Smart is Cool Because…,” and submitted a drawing reflecting that same theme.  More than 400 students from across the county entered the contest.

The winners’ artwork and essays will be on display in the Water Authority lobby for the month of May. They also are posted on the Water Authority’s website at www.sdcwa.org/be-watersmart-essay-contest.

Local winners include:
