After receiving over 75 great videos, the winners of the 2015 Water Spots Video Contest have been selected! This contest was created to encourage students to think about outdoor water efficiency. Young film makers in middle and high school were asked to create public service announcement videos that focused on the 2015 water efficiency theme: "BEAT THE LEAK! Find and fix leaks fast". The winners were announced at the Sacramento River Cat's game on April 12, 2015. See the 2015 Water Spots winners here!
