Visitors are invited to spend some time exploring Historic Downtown Wentzville as they scour the area for 12 artistic fire hydrants (hidden in plain sight). The fire hydrants were painted by seniors in the Wentzville School District, as part of the annual Water Division scholarship contest.
Each year, students paint fire hydrants in celebration of National Drinking Water Week. This year’s theme was “Superheroes.” The first- place winners were seniors Emily Griesenauer (Holt), Cassidee Wakefield (Timberland) and Juhaina Aarda (Liberty). Each won a $1,000 scholarship.
