Posted on 03/28/2019
Grand Prize Winner. 2019 Water Art InvitationalAmelia Daum, a junior at Forest Park High School, was the grand prize winner of this year’s Prince William County Service Authority’s (PWCSA) Water Art Invitational. Interpreting the theme, “Every Life and Job Depend on Water,” Daum won with a black and white photograph capturing her Labrador Retriever as he fetches a stick from a neighbor’s pond.

“He’s mainly good at going out and getting stuff [from the water],” said Daum, who hopes to turn him into a rescue dog someday. “When he comes back with the stick, we give him a treat.”

With 193 entries, this year was the Service Authority’s largest and most successful event. Daum was one of several Prince William County Public Schools students recognized.

High school students enrolled in public, private, and home schools in Prince William County, Manassas, and Manassas Park were eligible to participate.

Congratulations to all of the winners.
