Parents, siblings, relatives and teachers crowded Helix’s boardroom on May 24th to honor the top artists in this year’s Water is Life Poster Contest.

The contest is an educational program for kindergarten through sixth grade students offered by Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Met).  Helix likes the program and offers it to the elementary schools in our service area because it focuses students on the importance of water at a young age.

Students like the program because it’s fun and because their poster could be one of the 36 Met selects for their 2018 Water is Life Calendar, which is distributed throughout Southern California.

The posters created by the young artists in our boardroom on May 24th are on their way to Met for judging. If one is selected for Met’s calendar, we take the student and their parents to Los Angeles for Met’s ceremony.
