City of Santa Ana Launches 6th Annual Youth Water Poster Contest

The city of Santa Ana launched its 6th Annual Youth Water Poster Contest where students residing in the city will compete for a chance to win prizes ranging from gift certificates to Nintendo Switch and iPads. One Grand Prize winner and two finalists will be selected in each age category: 9-12, 13-14 and 15-19.

This year’s contest theme — Trust the Tap! — is designed to raise student awareness about the safety of their drinking water through creative expression. It educates students on how Santa Ana’s tap water is protected from viruses, including the coronavirus, and is safeguarded by the city’s Water Resources Division during the pandemic. It also reinforces good hygiene habits, such as the importance of washing hands regularly with soap and water, as an effective way to prevent spread of COVID-19 through surfaces.

More information, parental forms, contest rules and guidelines will soon be available on the Poster Contest webpage at http://santaanawater.org/contest. The site contains a 2020 Kids Activity Book, which features activities to do with students to make the contest fun and educational!

For students who can’t afford art materials, the city will make them available at no cost. Please call Robert Hernandez at (714) 647-3341 or email RYHernandez@santa-ana.org with requests. Students are encouraged to participate in the annual contest.
