The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) Water Awareness Poster Contest is an annual contest presented each spring. All Orange County students in grades Kindergarten through 12 are invited to participate. The goal of the Contest is to get students thinking about our most precious natural resource – water – and how access to clean, fresh drinking water improves our daily lives. Nearly a thousand entries are collected each year and from these entries, 40 winners are selected. The winning students, and their teachers and families, are recognized at an Annual Awards Ceremony held at the Discovery Cube.
