Ontario Pipeline - Summer 2015 - (Page 22)

FEATURE | CONFERENCE ART COMPETITION FOCUSES STUDENT ATTENTION ON WATER T he Ontario Water Works Association held its fourth annual Visual Art Competition for students in the Greater Toronto Area in two age categories: Grades 9 and 10 and Grades 11 and 12. The winner in the Grade 9 and 10 category was "What Comes Around" by Warren Wong, a Grade 10 student at Mentor College. The graphic displays an individual spilling garbage into the water. As a result, the source water becomes polluted, eventually contaminating the water nearest to the polluter's water pump. The second prize winner in the Grade 9 and 10 category was a painting called "Keeping Time" by Lauren Teal Manners, a Grade 10 student at Mentor College. In the centre of the painting is an hourglass with water in place of the sand. The hourglass is circled in barbed wire, protecting the water inside from external threats, indicating how valuable it is as the hourglass runs and the level of clean water becomes depleted. The first prize in Grade 11 and 12 category was awarded to "Cycle Underneath the City" by Preet Swaich and Nav Kiran Bajwa, both Grade 11 students at Mentor College. The painting depicts the infrastructure beneath the busy streets of the city, an array of pipes and sewers, as well as the contaminants that make their way into the groundwater through pollution. The artists note, "We depict the different influences of adding unnecessary waste to the sewage system which can ultimately be avoided with small changes." The second prize winner in the Grade 11 and 12 category was Tala Alkhaldi, a Grade 11 student at Mentor College for a work called "Purity." The painting shows two arms, one pouring the clean water and the other receiving polluted water. A rock formation represents the natural water source, while a kitchen faucet pouring water represents the result of water cleaning and filtration. The frail boy "What Comes Around" by Warren Wong, first prize in the represents the human cost of the polluted water.
