High School Video Contest
2022 marks the Tenth Annual High School Video Contest competition in which high school students demonstrate their creativity while sharing important messages about water quality and conservation. The contest allows ninth, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students attending schools in Bartow, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Paulding and Rockdale counties to participate.
Participants will create a 30-60 second video PSA focused on the theme “How Can You Encourage Water Conservation at School?” exploring all the ways you can encourage or influence a water conservation movement at school.
This year, the Metro Water District is introducing a new bonus category for a TikTok-style video. We want to see how creative you can be in making a video that matches the topic of the contest. Students can participate in both the main PSA-style contest and bonus TikTok-style contest. See the Contest Guidelines for more details.
All contest submissions are due May 19, 2022.
A Spanish-Language PSA
We are proud to offer the opportunity for students to create a Spanish-language PSA for our contest. Spanish is the second-most commonly spoken language in the 15-county region, and we are hopeful that our PSA messaging through this contest will reach more residents than ever before!
