The project recognizes and promotes the work of stormwater professionals globally through videos that are submitted from nonprofit organizations, government entities, consulting firms, and equipment manufacturers.

“This was a great opportunity for me to see all the terrific watershed management activities occurring around the country,” said contest judge Neal Shapiro, a supervisor with the City of Santa Monica (Calif.) Office of Sustainability and the Environment. “The high-caliber of educational pieces for local dissemination was fantastic.”

This year, 25 expert judges rated more than 100 submitted videos based on innovation, message communication, visual appeal and quality, content matter, and relevance.
