Lights, Camera, Action! Create a Video for Districts Make the Difference 2019 Student Video Contest

Show us how special districts make a difference in our community for a chance to win up to $2,000 in scholarships!

For over 100 years, special districts have kept our lights on, water flowing, and provided access to a multitude of services that enhance our communities. California’s special districts are much more than local service providers. These local agencies are created by local residents to meet their community’s needs in the most efficient and effective manner.

High school and college students gather your friends and family to create a fun and informative video highlighting your local special districts and the difference they make in your community.

Do you know a student who may be interested? Do you know a teacher, principal, superintendent, or school board member that could help promote the contest? Spread the word!

Videos must be submitted by September 30, 2019.
