The Elk Grove Unified School District is a strong believer in conserving, reusing and advocating for the Earth’s natural resources and is proud to recognize Franklin High School animation student, Gabriel Shane Aguirre for his award-winning Water Spots Public Service Announcement (PSA). Organized by the Regional Water Authority, the 2018 Water Spots Video Contest named Aguirre’s PSA as the Judges Choice First Place and Grand Prize and will share a $500 gift with Franklin High School. His PSA titled “Aqua Saviors” will air at two movie theaters within the Sacramento region this summer. Additionally, out of 14 videos submitted by Franklin High School, fellow Wildcat Jason Ventura was recognized for receiving top scores for his video project titled “Sink Superheroes.”


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.”
