Now in its seventh year, the Regional Water Authority organizes the PSA contest to motivate and challenge students to create videos focused on the year’s theme — what it means to be an H2O Hero. Only 10 finalists were chosen from the 100 videos submitted by Sacramento area middle and high school students. Ten finalists were selected and three videos were awarded “Judge’s Choice” awards. The public then voted for their favorite video, which ultimately would win the “People’s Choice Award.”
