Mayor Jerry Sanders and District 1 Councilwoman Sherri Lightner recognized 19 student artists including three La Jolla students earlier this month as winners of the 12th Annual Children’s Water Conversation Poster Contest at the City Administration Building.

“San Diegans continue to do a great job conserving water and these youth have reinforced our conversation ethic,” said Mayor Sanders in the announcement. “It is important to remember that San Diego still imports most of our water supply. Let’s continue to educate our youth about the value of water and embrace our long-term commitment to waste no water.”
Lightner, who represents District 1 including La Jolla, said she hopes “the students continue their great work in spreading the word about water conservation and sustainability in San Diego.
