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.

All contest submissions are due April 24, 2020. Stay tuned for final submission details, coming soon!
A Spanish-Language PSA
This year 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!

Contest details can be found in the contest guidelines, “What is the Human Water Cycle” fact sheet, and entry/release form (coming soon). Each student participating in the contest needs to fill out an entry form and send it to email@example.com.
2019 Contest Winners
Participants in the 2019 contest did an amazing job producing entertaining and creative 30-60 second video PSAs that answered the question, “How Do You Value Water?” – asking them 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 to submit over 60 entries.
Also, this year for the first time we took entries in both English and Spanish. Many great videos were submitted for each category, and we are 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.
