The mother-daughter team of Marie Dolcini and Giulia Guerrera has taken 1st place in the 2020 Napa County Water Conservation Video Contest. The duo’s 30-second creation “We All Live Down River” captured this year’s contest theme, I Save Our Water Because, through art and music including their own original song! Giulia, a Napa High sophomore, and her mother will get to see their winning video up on the big screen later this year. It will be shown as a public service announcement as part of the pre-show program for one week at the Century Napa Valley Theatre once it reopens. They will also receive a $100 gift card for Century Napa Valley.
Congratulations also go out to this year’s 2nd place winners from the Vintage High School Thirst Project, who didn’t let sheltering at home stop them from their collaborative effort! Originally restricted to high school students, this fifth annual video contest was opened up to sheltering families and all ages groups in response to school campus closures and the Shelter-at-Home Order. Contest sponsors include the Cities of Napa, American Canyon, St. Helena, and Calistoga, the Town of Yountville, Napa County, and the Napa County Resource Conservation District (RCD). Final judging was conducted by representatives from the City of Napa, NapaSan, the County, and the RCD.
