West County students are encouraged to participate in a statewide contest to create a billboard educating Californians about the state’s water supply.
The contest, from Next10.org, applies to all students from elementary school up through grad school. The teacher or professor who has the most students enter the contest will win $250 for class supplies.
Students can use any medium such as graphic design, drawing, painting and photography to create their billboard, and are encouraged to either do their own research about water or use the facts and figures on Next10.org. Entries can be any size, and the winning students will have their work expanded and featured on a digital billboard that receives more than a million daily impressions.
Deadline for entries is May 21 and must be accompanied by an entry form to qualify. There will be multiple winners in various categories who will be announced by May 30.
