The winners of the 2021 Value of Water Mini Poster Contest have been chosen from more than 100 entries. For this year’s contest, the City of Arlington encouraged students in pre-kindergarten to 4th grade to submit drawings of ways in which water is important to them and describe their artwork.

The annual art contest is sponsored by Arlington Water Utilities, Arlington Public Library, River Legacy Living Science Center, and Tarrant Regional Water District. This year’s winners came from several Arlington ISD elementary schools – Duff Elementary, Remynse Elementary, and The Oakridge School. Other winners attend Harmony Science Academy in Grand Prairie, Texas Online Preparatory School, or are homeschool students. They are:

  • 4th Grade – Lukas K.
  • 3rd Grade – Madeleine R.
  • 2nd Grade – Zibby T.
  • 1st Grade – Kien D.
  • Kindergarten – Paloma A.
  • Pre-kindergarten – Ella R.

Winners will receive art and science kits, water-themed books, and free passes to the upcoming Dinosaur Safari Exhibit at River Legacy Living Science Center. Each winner will also receive an invitation to be recognized at an Arlington City Council meeting. The water department will also display winning entries at Arlington City Hall or the Arlington Water Utilities South Service Center this fall. A poster of winner entries will also be provided to each child’s school.

The yearly Value of Water contest and winners announcement is set to coincide with the Oct. 21 observance of the Value of Water campaign’s Imagine a Day Without Water. Imagine a Day Without Water is a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment.
