2023 Water Art Invitational

Thirty-one Prince William County high school students received awards during the Prince William County Service Authority’s 2023 Water Art Invitational on Thursday, March 09. Denise Kamgaing, a junior at Colgan High School, took home this year’s Grand Prize. Her submission depicting the reflection of women retrieving water from a well provides a unique and beautifully crafted depiction of the theme, "Every Drop Counts."

The 166 submissions for this year’s Water Art Invitational depict the many ways in which water is an indispensable natural resource and a crucial part of our daily lives. The artwork includes imagery of plants, animals, industry, recreation and more. Virtual galleries showcasing this years' winners are available below.
