2013 Roll out the Rain Barrel Contest
The District is seeking entries for its 2013 Roll Out the Rain Barrel Art Contest. The contest is open to 1st through 12th graders attending school in the District’s service area, Laguna College of Art and Design students, and District customers.
The contest is intended to focus attention on Rain Barrels, which collect and store rain water from roofs that would otherwise be lost to runoff and diverted to storm drains, streams, and the ocean. Rain barrels sit under gutter down spouts and collect water that can be used to water plants in the landscape.
Contest participants are asked to create an original design on the back of the official entry form, which can be downloaded or picked up at the Water District’s headquarters office located at 306 Third Street in downtown Laguna Beach. Completed drawings must be submitted to the Water District by Friday, March 29, by 5 p.m.
Top entries will have the opportunity to recreate their artwork on an actual working rain barrel, provided by the District, and receive a $100 gift card for paint and supplies. Winners will be recognized at a District Commission meeting, and rain barrels will be on display at selected locations in downtown Laguna Beach during the month of May.
For additional information on the District’s Roll out the Rain Barrel Art Contest, contact Michelle Madriz, the District’s water use efficiency coordinator, at 464-3107.
