Lights, Camera, Action! Create a Video for Districts Make the Difference 2018 Student Video Contest

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

For over 100 years, local service agencies known as 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 60 second video highlighting your local special districts and the difference they make in your community.

The contest rules and application are available at www.DistrictsMaketheDifference.org/video-contest.

Submit your video to info@districtsmakethedifference.org between August 27, 2018, and September 30, 2018.

Contest Awards:

  • 1st Place- $2,000 Scholarship
  • 2nd Place- $1,000 Scholarship
  • 3rd Place- $500 Scholarship
