Water contest Jenny KimTwo local winners of the 14th Annual Children’s Water Conservation Poster Contest were honored by San Diego City Council at a ceremony on May 19. The ceremony celebrated the 19 children whose artwork helped spread the message to “Waste no Water.”

The two local winning student artists were Jenny Kim, from Notre Dame Academy who received first place in the third grade category, and Sidharth Udata from Ocean Air Elementary School, second place in the fourth grade category.

The city’s public utilities department holds the poster contest every year to provide a focal point for teachers to talk with students about the importance of using water wisely.

“These posters celebrate our lifestyle and serve as fun artistic reminders to continue our conservation efforts all days and all ways,” said Council President Pro-tem Sherri Lightner.

The winning posters will be on display at the San Diego County Fair’s Creative Youth Exhibit at the Del Mar Fairgrounds from June 7 through July 6. The posters will also be featured in the 2015 City of San Diego public utilities department’s water conservation calendar.
