A Forest Park High School student is the winner of a recent art competition.
Amelia Daum, a junior, took home the grand prize of the Prince William County Service Authority’s (PWCSA) Water Art Invitational.
Her black and white photograph featured her lab as he fetches a stick, according to a release.
“He’s mainly good at going out and getting stuff [from the water],” Amelia said in a release. “When he comes back with the stick, we give him a treat.”
Amelia was one of several Prince William County students recognized at the annual invitational, which was held at the Raymond Spittle Building in Woodbridge on Thursday evening.
“The Water Art Invitational is a unique vehicle to raise awareness about the value of clean water and engage students in environmental stewardship,” Deputy Communications Director Kathy Bentz said in a release.
Event organizers dedicated the program to former Supervisor John Jenkins, who passed away last month.
Here are the top winners for each category:

This year, the Service Authority received 193 submissions, 18 of which were named General Manager Award winners.
Almost $5,000 in cash prizes were presented to local students.
