Grace was a third grade student at Stonegate Elementary School in Irvine when her poster was selected by IRWD for participation in the regional contest. IRWD received more than 300 entries and chose five finalists sent to Metropolitan for final judging. Student artists from all over Southern California were honored at Metropolitan on December 12. IRWD has participated in the contest all 25 years of its existence and has had at least one winner each year.
The 36 posters will be featured in a traveling art show set up in the lobbies of participating water districts, including IRWD at a future date. Please visit www.irwd.com for an announcement of the arrival of the student art show. At the conclusion of the road show, IRWD will be sent Grace’s framed poster and she will be honored at the Board of Directors meeting.
