Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) has selected first, second, and third-place winners, as well as three honorable mentions, in the 2023 “Water is Life” Art Contest.

Held every year in partnership with the Metropolitan Water District (MWD), the contest is open to all Pasadena students in grades K – 12 who reside within PWP service territory.
Student artists submitted creative artwork with messaging encouraging the community to conserve and use water wisely. Artwork submissions were due in early June 2023. PWP received more than 20 submissions. All six winning artworks were submitted to MWD for consideration in their annual Student Art Calendar.
“As a community-owned utility, PWP takes pride in empowering local youth about water conservation and sustainability through educational programs like the ‘Water is Life’ Art Contest,“ said PWP General Manager Sidney Jackson. “We thank Pasadena’s talented student artists for their great entries, which help support PWP’s commitment to environmental stewardship.”
The winning students attended Hamilton Elementary School, Madison Elementary School, Sierra Madre Middle School, CIS Academy, Westridge School, and La Salle High School.
