The theme of the 2022 Student Art Calendar Contest, “Water is Life,” relates to the stewardship and conservation of water. This means protecting water resources for future generations through conservation and education.

“The Art Contest is an important way for students to be come aware of water as a precious resource that should not be wasted,” said FMWD President Richard Atwater.
