2019 High School Video Contest Winners!

2019 Contest Winners!

Participants in the 2019 contest did an amazing job of producing entertaining and creative 30-60 second video PSAs on the topic of “How Do You Value Water?” – asking them and the viewer to imagine a day without water, and explore the true value of our water resources and infrastructure. Over 150 students worked individually or in teams and submitted over 60 entries.

Also, this year for the first time we took both entries in English and Spanish. Many great videos were submitted for each category, and will be excited to see the contest develop further in the future.

Congratulations to our contest winners and honorable mentions, and thank you to all students and teachers who participated.
