It's time for JCSD's Annual Water Is Life Student Art Contest!

Our goal is to celebrate the talent of our local budding artists while highlighting the importance of water conservation.

 Contest Theme

The theme of water conservation and stewardship should be reflected in the artwork. Focus on climate change and how it effects our water supply.

Art Contest Guidelines

  • Artwork must be created horizontally so that it appears in the landscape orientation.
  • Students should use BOLD, BRIGHT, and BRILLIANT colors using colored pencils, markers, paint, ink, fabric, cut paper, watercolors, and/or digital art. If students elect to use crayons, we request that they select dark colors as the lighter colors do not show up well for reproduction purposes.
  • A short message about water MUST be written concisely and fewer words are better than more.
  • NO trademark or copyrighted artwork will be accepted.
  • Students artwork should focus on water conservation.
  • Art duplicating the artwork of past winners will be disqualified.
  • Art/artist may win in one category only.
  • Must be able to digitally submit a photo, scan or file of the artwork.

Grade Category

One grand prize winner from each of the grade categories will be awarded.

  • K-3 Grade Category
  • 4-6 Grade Category

Student Prizes

The winning students from each grade category will receive a plaque featuring their artwork and a prize. Each artist, their artwork, and their teacher will also be featured in an edition of JCSD's Community Newsletter, which is mailed to more than 28,000 JCSD customers.
