Los Angeles Department of Water and Power

As the nation’s second largest city, Los Angeles uses a lot of water and energy. It’s important that we all work together to conserve these vital resources and protect our planet. So we’re calling on all students to submit original artwork illustrating how everyone can do their part.

Prizes will be awarded in grades 4-12, plus teachers of first-place student winners at each grade level will also receive a prize. Winning students and their teachers will also be invited to an awards presentation to be held in May 2018.

Submission Deadline extended to March 31, 2018

Teachers, encourage your students to enter their original artwork in the 2017–2018 Hitachi Poster contest. Students should think of a problem in their community and what kind of robot they would design to help overcome that problem. We need your students’ suggestions, in artwork form, on how their robot would tackle environmental issues, financial issues, food supply issues, healthcare, over-crowding, poverty, safety needs, transportation, unemployment, or any other need their community needs to address.

Students in grades 6–8 and 9–12 are eligible to participate. First-, second- and third-place winners will be chosen from each grade, and a grand prize winner from each age group. Teachers of first-place student winners will also receive a prize.

Submission deadline is January 31, 2018.
