The Santa Barbara County Water Agency is pleased to announce the opening of applications for the 20th Annual WaterWise High School Video Contest. Every year, students compete to create entertaining and informational videos that convey the importance of water use efficiency in Santa Barbara County. High school students are challenged this year to create 30-second videos that focus on the theme, “A Day in the Life of a Water Saver.”

County Water Agency Manager Fray Crease says, “We are excited to be celebrating the 20th anniversary of this valuable and popular program.”

Up to three videos can be submitted per school. The winning videos will receive prizes and have their videos aired in local movie theaters.

While the County Water Agency and water providers arrange for monetary prizes to the winning schools, local private sector sponsors provide awards for the students:

  • First Place: $500 provided by Carollo Engineers.
  • Second Place: $250 provided by Dudek.
  • Third Place: $150 provided by Ewing Irrigation.
  • Two Honorable Mentions for North and South County submissions:
    • North County: Car wash vouchers provided by Splash N’ Dash Car Wash.
    • South County: Film festival tickets provided by the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
  • People’s Choice Award (a unique award voted by the public): $500 provided by All-Around Landscape Supply.


In order to be eligible to win prizes, all student participants must submit their videos and completed Application Packet online by midnight of March 1, 2019.

The County Water Agency and local water providers thank our community sponsors for their generous support and look forward to seeing the creative videos that students submit for the contest!
