Twelve local students were recognized as finalists in the annual Water Awareness Poster Contest at Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD) during ceremonies conducted at the Board of Directors meeting, Tuesday, May 22. The posters were selected from more 2,600 entries submitted by students from elementary schools within the LVMWD service area. The artworks encompass a wide range of expression– including watercolors, mixed-media, and crayon creations -- all centering on the importance of water in our lives. Families, teachers and school officials joined the students at LVMWD for recognition and celebration. Each finalist was presented with a personalized Certificate of Recognition and a t-shirt showing their respective artwork. The Ann Dorgelo Water Awareness Award is presented annually to the school of the top finalist. Named in honor of a long-term LVMWD Board member in recognition of her commitment to excellence in education, the trophy will once again be proudly displayed at Bay Laurel Elementary School in Calabasas for the coming year. The top finalist, Liane Lee, also captured this honor last year. Click here to view the posters!!
