Library to exhibit pupils’ artwork
Thursday, April 24th, 2014
Issue 17, Volume 18.
The colorful cans are decorative but functional containers designed for collecting kitchen grease rather than pouring it down the drain. The district holds an annual contest, open to second- through fifth-graders, as part of its "Grease – in the Can, Not the Drain!" campaign.
After about 600 entries from Fallbrook and Bonsall schools came rolling in for the 10th annual art contest, the painstaking task of selecting the cream of the crop began.
This is the first year that schools in the Rainbow Municipal Water District have been able to participate in the annual FPUD contest because the two water agencies had a joint agreement to share resources.
Cans were decorated to look like pigs, robots, chefs, ocean seascapes made out of starfish and crushed shells, caricatures such as Angry Birds and Elmo, and one even looked like FPUD’s sewer treatment plant.
The schoolchildren who crafted them were recognized at the March board of directors meeting. In addition, Fallbrook Street School was awarded the district’s $400 prize for having the greatest number of entries in the contest. The prizes are incentives for schools to encourage student participation. The money goes toward the schools’ art programs.
The young artists were presented Wal-Mart gift certificates and other prizes, including gift certificates donated by McDonalds.
"It’s amazing what the students come up with for this project," said general manager Brian Brady. "They’re so creative!"
Students from La Paloma (LP), Live Oak School (LOS), Fallbrook Street School (FSS), Bonsall Elementary (BE), Vallecitos Elementary (VE), William H. Frazier (WHF), Iowa Street School (ISS) and the Fallbrook Home School Academy (FHSA) participated in the contest.
