“Make Every Drop Count” video competition open to local high school and college students

 

March 4, 2011 (Spring Valley) - The Otay Water District today announced its first ever water conservation video contest, “Make Every Drop Count.” The District will recognize the top three student-submitted videos that highlight the importance of water conservation and encourage the community to use water more efficiently.

 

“The creativity that local students have demonstrated in past District photo competitions has continuously impressed our team,” said Otay Water District’s Water Conservation Manager William Granger. “Our goal was to take the competition a step further this year and incorporate that student creativity into videos that will help our customers better understand the importance of water conservation.”

 

The video contest is open to 11th and 12th grade high school students and college students that reside in the District’s service area. It is free to participate and entrants can compete as individuals or as part of a team. The District will select the top three original one-minute videos to receive cash prizes.

 

Entries must be submitted to the Otay Water District at 2554 Sweetwater Springs Boulevard in Spring Valley no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 18, 2011. Videos must be on a CD or DVD as a wmv, mov, mpg, avi or mp4 file. Only one will be entry allowed per individual or team.
