The LAUSD Water Conservation Contest encourages individual students or teams of kids in grades K-12 students to use art, photography, media, community projects or other methods to illustrate their ideas for saving water at their school, home or in their community. Action Plans will be judged on innovation, inspiration, feasibility, educational value, artistic interpretation and level of school and community engagement.
Winning multimedia projects will be incorporated into the 2016-17 Sustainability Calendar and/or posted on the LA Unified Sustainability Initiatives website.
The top Action Plan in each grade level will receive $10,000, while the top Action Plans for the elementary, middle, and high school levels will win $50,000, with the prize money going toward a school project.
“We are excited to partner with the Mayor’s Office and LADWP to increase water literacy among the District’s students,” said Christos Chrysiliou, director of Architectural and Engineering Services. “The District aims to reduce our water consumption and looks forward to seeing some really creative solutions from the students.”
