Cobb Students Create Water Conservation Artworks

waterSmart™ Honors 12 Cobb County Middle School Students in waterSmart waterArt Calendar Contest

Cobb County middle school students were invited to use their talent to create a 2-D work of art for the 11th annual waterSmart waterArt calendar contest.

Cobb County middle school students were invited to use their talent to create a 2-D work of art for the 11th annual waterSmart waterArt calendar contest.

This contest is a collaborative program of the Cobb County Water System (CCWS) and Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority (CCMWA) that encourages students to creatively answer the question “How is Water Important to Me?” The waterSmart program was initiated by the CCMWA in 2000, to educate its service area residents of all ages about the importance of indoor and outdoor water conservation, and to help encourage sustainable, year-round conservation, regardless of climate conditions.

Students from seven Cobb County middle schools submitted artwork, which was judged on creativity, relevance, and artistic ability. All submitted artwork is displayed in a virtual gallery that can be viewed at https://tinyurl.com/y4ppqnd4

The 12 winning entries will be featured in the 2021 waterSmart waterArt calendar that will be distributed throughout Cobb County. Winners were honored, and the cover winner revealed, in a virtual reception on November 12th.

Winning submissions were: Aanshi P., also chosen as the calendar cover winner, from Dickerson Middle School; Eva Maria J. from Floyd Middle School; Lauren R. from Lost Mountain Middle School; Avery C., Saige P., and Lindsey M., from Lovinggood Middle School; Reina A., Elaine D., Anumita S., Audrey O., Bryn P., and Madison C., from Simpson Middle School.

CCWS, CCMWA, and the Cobb County Visual Arts Department would like to commend all entries and congratulate the winners selected for feature in the 2021 calendar.
