Lights, camera, action! If you have an eye for filmmaking and want to help spread the word about wise water use and conservation, join us by participating in the Public Utilities Departmentís annual Student Film Contest.

Open to high school and college students throughout the cities of San Diego, Imperial Beach and Coronado, this contest challenges entrants to create a 30-second film that encourages wise water use, conservation and water reuse. The storylines must have one of the following "how to" messages:

  1. How to "waste no water" by planting native or California-Friendly® plants.
  2. How to "waste no water" by using a rain barrel.
  3. How to create a sustainable community by "wasting no water."
  4. How to "waste no water" by fixing leaks.
  5. How to recycle water.

The winning and finalists' films will be announced and shown at a "Red Carpet Premiere" at Reuben H. Fleet Science Center's IMAX theater and also featured on this website and our Facebook page. For the grand prize, the winning film will be shown this summer in select local movie theaters. Finally, the finalists' films will get a second chance to win through a social media poll, where anyone can vote for their favorite film via Facebook. That winner will receive a prize package.
