Youth’s Art Graces BWS Calendar
An akamai poster artist from Central Oahu will see her work published in the Board of Water Supply’s 2015 Water Conservation calendar.
Mililani Mauka Elementary School fourth-grader Noelle Shimabukuro took first place for grades 3-4, showcasing the theme of “Conserve Water: No Effort Is Too Small” through brightly illustrated water drops.
“The quality and creativity of the entries we receive continue to exceed our expectations,” said BWS chairman Duane Miyashiro. “The winning students proficiently expressed ways for the community to help ensure a sustainable water supply.”
The annual poster and poetry competition, which promotes responsibility for prudent water use on the island, attracted more than 1,300 posters and 200 poetry entries. Winners and honorable mentions in each age category are on display through July 12 at Kapolei Hale, and later at Kahala Mall, Windward Mall and the BWS building lobby.
