The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s
water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore and enhance
the natural and human environments.

Connecting Creativity and Conservation
“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up” – attributed to Pablo Picasso. This quote rang true for the highly competitive California Arts Council’s “Conservation Creativity Challenge” poster contest. Hundreds of amazing entries were judged as students across California were asked to get creative by designing a poster depicting the need for water conservation. The California Arts Council, in partnership with DWR, Save Our Water and Project Water Education for Teachers, sponsored the contest. With winners selected from 4th and 5th grades, more than 650 children throughout California participated. "The Conservation Creativity Challenge is a great way for students everywhere to get involved and share their ideas about saving water every day,” said Michelle Robinson, DWR Water Education Specialist.
