Mesa Water invites students in service area to enter water video contest

Mesa Water District® is hosting a video contest for local students who live in or attend high schools and colleges in the Mesa Water service area, to promote water awareness.

“We are excited to see the next generation of storytellers highlight our 100% local, reliable and safe water. Local students represent the future and the video contest is a creative and meaningful way to partner with students in telling Mesa Water’s story of abundant local, reliable, clean safe water,” said Marice H. DePasquale, Mesa Water board president.

Students are invited to submit a fun and informative video (60 seconds or less) addressing one the following questions:

–Why is it safe to drink Mesa Water straight from the tap? – #ByeByeBottled

–What does it mean to you that Mesa Water is 100% local? – #PurelyLocal

–Why do you love Mesa Water? – #ILoveMesaWater 

Animations, songs, poems, TikToks, monologues and stop motion videos are welcome. Video entries will be accepted from January 1 through February 28, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. Three winners will be selected with the following monetary prizes:

~1st Place - $1,000

~2nd Place - $750

~3rd Place - $500

A panel of judges will select the winning videos based on accuracy, creativity, quality and entertainment value. Winners will be notified in March 2022 and will be invited to attend a board meeting in the Spring to be recognized and receive their prize.

Students must live in or attend high school or college in the Mesa Water service area, which includes Costa Mesa, parts of Newport Beach and some unincorporated areas of the county. For official contest rules and a map of the service area, visit
