Video contest promotes clean water
A campaign encouraging residents to keep trash and pollution out of local streams and creeks has been launched by the Ventura County Watershed Protection District.
The awareness effort will run through April.
Radio station 103.3 The Vibe (KVYB-FM) is hosting a Vibe Video Watershed Crusader Contest.
Anyone who submits a video no longer than 15 seconds showing what they are doing to protect Ventura County’s watersheds will be entered to win two tickets to the sold-out “One Direction” concert Sept. 12 at the Rose Bowl.
Videos can be submitted by April 11 through Instagram or Vine Video using the hashtag #vibevideo.
The campaign will include commercials on local television and radio stations, and ads at bus stops throughout the county. The television spot, called “Past, Present and Future,” was shot at locations in Ventura County, including Joel McCrea Ranch in Thousand Oaks and Surfers’ Point in Ventura.
The Ventura Countywide Stormwater Quality Management Program, made up of the Ventura County, its 10 cities and the Ventura County Watershed Protection District, is supporting the campaign.
