Water Conservation Day at the Capitol winners announced

Juniors and Seniors from Martin, Terry and Yoakum counties competed in the annual Water Conservation Day at the Capitol art contest hosted by the Permian Basin UWCD, South Plains UWCD and the Sandy Land UWCD. To celebrate Water Conservation Day at the Capitol, students compete in an art contest relating to water conservation issues.

Winners travel to Austin to display their artwork in the Capitol and meet their representatives. In addition to being recognized for their art, winners get to serve as pages on the House and Senate floors. Pages act as messengers to the representatives and provide any assistance necessary to the floor delegates.

One winner was selected from each water district. Winners for the 2013 WCDC art contest include:

Permian Basin UWCD- Lexi Robles from Sands CISD with her artwork titled "Stop the Flow, Save H2O"

Sandy Land UWCD- Polina Tolstova from Plains ISD with her artwork titled
"Protect our water for the future generations. Don't let it be the victim of indifference"

South Plains UWCD- Angela Sanchez with Brownfield ISD with an untitled artwork submission.

Congratulations to our winners! Students will be making the trip to Austin March 27-29. For more information regarding the event, feel free to contact us via email at
