Imagining A World Without Water Pays Off For One Local High School Student

The winner of the 2010 Water Stewardship Video Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest is Marisa Petrick, a junior at Academy of the Holy Names in Tampa. Marisa's one minute "Save H2O Project" invites the viewer to imagine a world without water and features several examples of actions in our daily life requiring water that we can take for granted.

The contest was open to Hillsborough County high school students creating original videos to raise the viewer's awareness by explaining how water is used, the importance of conservation, the dangers of overuse, or exploring sustainable programs which will continue to protect the Hillsborough River watershed and local water resources. For her winning entry Marisa will receive the $1,000 grand prize.

The annual contest was sponsored through a partnership between the City of Tampa Water Department, Hillsborough County Water Resource Services, and the Hillsborough River Watershed Alliance.
