Sweetwater Authority (Authority) is now accepting entries for its 2023 High School Photo Contest. Now in its 15th year, the contest aims to showcase and celebrate through photography how safe, reliable water service supports everything we do.

“Whether at home, outdoors, at school or within our community, water is vital to everything we do,” said Board Chair Hector Martinez. “This contest offers students a chance to reflect on how water supports their lives, and showcase that through their artistic talent. The Board is proud to continue this tradition of engaging with local students about the value of water, both through this contest and our other education programs and partnerships.

Winners will receive monetary prizes, have their artwork displayed at the Bonita Museum & Cultural Center, and receive recognition at an Authority Board meeting in May 2023. 

The contest is open to students who live or attend school in the Authority's service area. The deadline to submit entries is March 17, 2023 at 5 p.m. Full contest rules and submission information is available at www.sweetwater.org/photocontest.
