Water Conservation Film Contest

2011 Water Conservation Film Contest

Contest Description

The City of San Diego Water Conservation Program kicked off its 3rd Annual Water Conservation Film Contest, titled “San Diegans Waste No Water”. This contest was open to 11th and 12th grade high school students and all college students in the cities of San Diego, Coronado and Imperial Beach. The film contest created an opportunity to engage students directly about the importance of conserving water, allowing the creativity of the students to inspire the rest of our community to use water more efficiently.

All contest entrants were recognized, and the finalists' films were shown at a special “Red Carpet Premiere” on Wednesday, May 18 at the IMAX Theater at the Rueben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. At the premiere, the winning film was announced and a prize pack donated by local businesses, attractions and cinemas, valuing approximately $1,000, was awarded to the two filmmakers. Their film will also be featured this summer at AMC Mission Valley 20, AMC Plaza Bonita 14 and Edwards Mira Mesa Stadium 18.
