LAKE ELSINORE – Two students from Lake Elsinore, Adan Martinez and Noelia Tuitasi, received top awards at Metropolitan Water District of Southern California’s annual poster art contest through Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District’s education programs. Martinez and Tuitasi were invited to a recognition ceremony at Metropolitan’s headquarters in Los Angeles, Dec. 7.

The students were two of 36 students chosen to be honored out of over 14,000 entries from around Southern California. This year theme was “Water is Life,” which focused on the importance of water to all life on earth.

Tuitasi, who was a student at William Collier Elementary School when she submitted her art, depicted two neighbors, one using water inefficiently and the other using water wisely with a California-friendly garden. Martinez, also of William Collier Elementary School, drew a colorful depiction of Lake Elsinore with boat sails declaring ways to save.

The art will now be featured on Metropolitan’s 2018 calendar which is available at Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District’s Headquarters. For more information about EVMWD’s poster art contest and education programs, visit www.evmwd.com/education.
