The Santa Fe Irrigation District Board of Directors recognized the top three winners for the Santa Fe Irrigation District’s “Water is 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: Matthew, first place, and Isabella, second place, both from Saint James Academy in Solana Beach, and Riley, third place, from Solana Santa Fe Elementary School in Rancho Santa Fe. Matthew’s first place poster will be featured on a full page for one month in a regional 2013 North County Water Agencies calendar. The district recognized all the winners with gift certificates and a personalized water bottle.
The “Water is Life” poster contest began in 1993, and since then, over 5,200 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.
