The Coronavirus isn’t stopping a utility company from recognizing young artists.
Estella Amoussou, a senior at Colgan High School in Manassas, has won the 2020 Water Art Invitational.
This year, 27 students were honored through the program, which is run by the Prince William County Service Authority (PWCSA). The theme was “Water Connects Us All,” according to a release from the PWCSA.
Amoussou, who has placed three times in the annual event, painted a village that uses water. Her submission was among almost 140 pieces that were entered in the Water Art Invitational.

Additionally, 17 students received a General Manager’s Award.
The Water Art Invitation winners are usually recognized at an awards ceremony. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the ceremony was cancelled. This year’s winners and their entries were honored in a video that can be seen on the PWCSA website.
“Our judges were extremely impressed with all of the entries,” PWCSA Deputy Director of Communications Kathy Bentz said in a release. “Despite this year’s unusual circumstances, we are delighted to announce our winners. With a 20-year track record of success, we are confident that the Water Art Invitational will continue to grow and inspire local high school students to produce beautiful water-related art.”
