Cherokee County Water and Sewerage Authority (CCWSA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 CCWSA student photography contest. The theme of the contest this year was the human water cycle. Students were asked to consider: Where does the water that you use every day come from? How does it get to your home, school, and local businesses? Where is it stored? How does fire protection fit into the cycle? Where does it go after you use it? What is the connection to food production and energy? Student photographers were challenged to capture interest and beauty in the human water cycle. The winning photographers did that beautifully!
In the 6th – 8th grade category Caleb Miller, 7th grade student from Creekland Middle School, is the winner with his photograph titled “Tower at Sunset.” In the 9th – 12th grade category Leila Raymond-Kaina, 12th grade student from Cherokee High School, is the winner. The students received a framed copy of their winning photograph and a check for fifty dollars. The photographs are proudly displayed at the CCWSA main office, Rose Creek Water Reclamation Facility (WRF), Fitzgerald Creek WRF, Riverbend WRF, Etowah River Water Treatment Facility, and H. Q. Lathem Reservoir.
