A total of 19 videos were submitted in this year’s contest, which challenged middle school and high school students to create compelling and original 60-second Public Service Announcement videos on the 2020 water efficiency theme H2O Tunes.

A team of water efficiency experts narrowed videos down to the top finalists, and then a panel of community leaders selected the winners. A HUGE THANK YOU to our judging panel of community leaders, which included the Vallejo/Solano Film Commission’s Jim Reikowsky and Pixar Animation Studio’s Daniel Holland.

Selections were based on entertainment value and originality, videography, style and organization, audio/sound, and movie content and accuracy.
