Area Artists On BWS Calendar

Residents still may be looking for that perfect 2013 calendar – the kind that has a local feel to it and plenty of good advice on saving money and water.

The Board of Water Supply has available its 2013 Water Conservation Calendar, which showcases the winning artwork and poetry of Oahu public and private school students, including three from West Oahu.

A poster by fifth-grader Seri Nakamura of Pearl Ridge Elementary (teacher Liane Tanigawa) graces the month of February, while sixth-grader Kekoa Oishi of Kapolei Middle School (Daryle Mishina) is the May selection, and kindergartener Stecya Santos of St. Elizabeth School (Sommerlyn Leong) anchors December with her poster design.

They all competed in the BWS contest last year on the theme of “Save, Water, Save Energy,” and their messages reflect this. Santos and Oishi both placed first at their grade level, and Nakamura placed second.

Free calendars are available at the BWS headquarters on Beretania Street, or can be downloaded at Entry deadline for the 2014 contests is March 6.
