More about the Save Water Video Contest:
The fifth annual student-made video contest this year was organized by the Water Conservation Coalition of Santa Cruz County and the Monterey County Water Awareness Committee. Local high school and college video production classes were invited to submit short public service announcement (PSA) videos in English or Spanish. The theme of this year’s contest was Water-Wise Gardens. The contest aims to cultive high-quality, 26-second PSA videos that inspire and encourage water-wise habits that save water and reduce water pollution. The students were asked to make videos that inspire residents and/or businesses to take one specific action that conserves water in the garden, tell a story about a resident or business that has successfully conserved water in the garden or create a visual representation of how much water is saved by having a water-wise garden. The winning videos will air on TV, before movies in the Santa Cruz Cinema 9 movie theater, and on social media and the web to promote water-wise gardening.
