Each year, Pasadena Water and Power chooses two high school seniors from Pasadena for an academic scholarship. First place is awarded a $5,000 scholarship while second place is awarded $2,500. The program is open to students from both public and private schools. This year, students were asked to write an essay citing research about the statewide drought, including recommendations to preserve the long-term water supply.
