Congratulations go out to winners of the 2021 Napa County Water Conservation Video Contest! A 4-person team primarily made up of Napa High students took the top prize of $250. Giulia Guerrera, Ava Dominguez, Keira Prouty, and Sophie Gonsier captured this year’s theme, Imagine Our Water-Wise Future, as their musical alter egos, “the Backyard Bots”. Their 30-second video “No Water, No Future” will be shown as a public service announcement as part of the pre-show program for all films at Century Napa Valley Theatre Friday, July 9 through Thursday, July 15. Denied its big screen showing due to the pandemic, the 2020 winning video “We All Live Down River” will also be presented that week. That was also created by Giulia Guerrera, now a two-time winner of the video contest!
Congratulations also go out to this year’s 2nd place winner from Napa Valley College, Kaeleigh Rogerson, who will receive a $150 prize. Her playful and informative video “Ryleigh’s Water-Wise Future” presents helpful conservation tips. The 3rd place prize of $100 goes to Abygail Sims of River Middle School for “Conserve Our Water For a Brighter Future”. Traditionally limited to high school students, this sixth annual video contest was opened up to all age groups. Contest sponsors include the Cities of Napa, American Canyon, St. Helena, and Calistoga, the Town of Yountville, NapaSan, Napa County, and the Napa County Resource Conservation District. Final judging was conducted by conservation staff from the agencies. Full contest details and the top videos from all six years can be viewed online at www.napawatersheds.org/videocontest.
