Rancho Santa Fe School students place first and second in Santa Fe Irrigation District poster contest


On May 16, the Santa Fe Irrigation District Board of Directors recognized the top three winners for the Santa Fe Irrigation District’s “Water for Life” Water Awareness Poster Contest. The annual poster contest is open to all fourth graders in the district’s service area.

This year’s winners are: Sofia Vitale, first place, and Michael Chang, second place, both from Rancho Santa Fe Elementary School, and Grant, third place, from Santa Fe Christian School in Solana Beach. Sofia’s first place poster will be featured on a full page for one month in a regional 2014 North County Water Agencies calendar. The district recognized all the winners with gift certificates and a personalized water bottle.

The “Water for Life” poster contest began in 1993, and, since then, more than 5,250 children from the Santa Fe Irrigation District service area have participated in the Water Awareness Poster Contest. This year, over 75 children from five classes and three schools submitted entries.
