Watershed Protection’s first annual Flood Safety Video Contest is now open! 

In this contest, Austin area 6th through 12th grade students are invited to create their very own short PSA showing how to “Turn Around - Don't Drown®.” The winning PSAs will receive a $100 gift card, and their video may be aired on local news stations.

A PSA, or Public Service Announcement, is a short announcement created to provide information to the public. PSAs may look and feel different, but they share the same goal: to persuade people to take action and help solve an issue that affects the community.

Calling all sixth through twelfth graders! Enter the Flood Safety Video Contest by March thirty-first for a chance to win.

Contest Details

Contest Eligibility: This contest is open to all 6th through 12th graders in the Austin area.

Contest Period: Submissions will be accepted from January 9, 2023 through March 31, 2023.
