High School Video Contest

2020 marks the Eighth 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 “What is the Human Water Cycle?” exploring how water moves from a its source to the tap, as well as all the critical infrastructure and processes involved in getting it there. 

All contest submissions are due April 24, 2020. 

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!
