Sometimes, being a superhero means fixing leaky faucets and remembering to turn off the garden hose.
“Everybody is a superhero when saving water. You don’t need special powers,” said Dylan Deleon, 8, a third-grader at Wardlaw Elementary School and first place winner in his division for this year’s Vallejo City Unified School district Earth Day contest.
This is the fourth year the district has held an Earth Day contest, this time asking students to design a bookmark for the theme “We’re in a drought, help us out.” Previous years involved creating banners, posters or light switch plates.
