RRWA sponsors an annual High School Video Contest in honor of Water Awareness Month in partnership with Sonoma Water. Each year, the RRWA Board of Directors votes on a contest topic. Students are challenged to make a public service announcement that will help change public attitudes and behaviors by raising awareness about the water issue.
Learn more about this year’s contest by visiting the Sonoma Water’s High School Video Contest page.
High schools throughout the Russian River watershed, as well as the Water and Energy Education Program’s service area, receive participation information. First, second, and third place videos are selected by a panel of professionals in the water and media fields. Cash prizes are split between the student(s) who create the winning videos and the high school they attend. The winning videos are used as educational outreach materials throughout the watershed.
Sonoma Water offers FREE water education lessons and classroom supplies for high school students. Visit our website to access these free resources: www.sonomawater.org/education
