Local teens’ video wins

By From page B1 | April 26, 2013

Tyler Kirby Kidd and Melissa Pickrell of  Ponderosa High School were among 10 regional winners of a video public service announcement for saving water.

One hundred videos were submitted to a panel of judges that included Kathleen Dodge of the El Dorado County Film Commission.

Called a Water Spots video contest, it was primarily sponsored by the Regional Water Authority.

From upbeat jingles to serious messages about water scarcity, Sacramento-area high school students showed off their creativity in 30-second public service announcement videos on the contest’s 2013 theme: Check sprinkler systems every month for water-wasting problems and make repairs within 48 hours.

The finalists and people’s choice winners will be displayed on the Raley’s Field Jumbotron at 12:25 p.m. on Sunday, May 5 before the Sacramento River Cats game.
