Students in grades K-12 who attend school located within the service area of Foothill Municipal Water District — primarily in La Cañada Flintridge, Montrose, La Crescenta and Altadena — are invited to enter the eighth annual “Water is Life” art contest.

“The future requires that we all use water wisely. This theme of conservation and stewardship should be reflected in the artwork,” according to a news release issued Monday by FMWD General Manager Nina Jazmadarian. Her agency co-sponsors the contest with Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
