Online Voting Begins Today for EWSU Student Art Contest

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – We all know that water is essential. But have you ever stopped to think about how important water is in your everyday life? What do you take for granted that would not be possible without water?

“How Much Do You Know About H20?” is the theme of the 2023 Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) Student Artwork Contest. EWSU challenged fifth and eighth-grade students at Cedar Hall Community and Lincoln School, and high school students at Evansville Day School and Signature School to illustrate the importance of water through art.

The public is invited to help select the winners through online voting.
