Although school is out for summer, we can still see great work from our local high schoolers - at the movies! Conservation Conversation, the 1st place winner in the 2018 Napa County Water Conservation Video Contest, plays in the pre-show program for all films shown at the Century Napa Valley Theatre Friday, June 15 through Thursday, June 21. Topping 50 other entries, the Napa High team of Kai Matthiasson and Ilenna Brown artfully captured this year’s contest theme, California Water: Never Enough to Waste, in their winning video. Each student received a $60 gift card for Century Napa Valley so that they can see their 30-second public service announcement up on the big screen.
This third annual video contest was sponsored by the Cities of Napa, American Canyon, St. Helena, and Calistoga, the Town of Yountville, Napa County, and the Napa County Resource Conservation District. It was open to all students in grades 9-12 attending school in Napa County. Judging was conducted by local water conservation staff and the Watershed Information and Conservation Council (WICC) Board of Directors. A record number of entries were submitted and congratulations also go out to this year’s 2nd place (Fryl Chelzea Dela Cruz) and 3rd place (Chanelle Mayrix Roces and Marvic Vivo) winners from American Canyon High School. Full contest details and the top three videos from all three years of the contest are found at www.napawatersheds.org/videocontest.
