Three fourth-grade students were recognized at a recent Ramona Municipal Water District Board of Directors meeting for their winning posters in a contest to promote water awareness.

RMWD is a member of the North County Water Agencies (NCWA), the organization that sponsors the annual Water Awareness Poster Contest. The theme for this year’s contest was “Water is Life!”

Participating students from fourth grade classes in the district illustrated how water affects their lives, ways to conserve or recycle, or ways to prevent water pollution.

Poster winners are:

First Place:

Loreli Ledezma, Ramona Community School

Second Place:

Andrea Corona, Ramona Elementary School

Third Place

: George Cohen, Barnett Elementary School

The three posters will be in the NCWA 2014 calendar. The first place poster will be featured to represent Ramona as a full page for one of the 12 months.

Loreli, artist of the poster, said, "My favorite way to save water is to turn off the water when brushing my teeth."

RMWD has participated in the contest since 2001.
