Young River Protectors Video Contest

Today I received an email asking to use our video We All Live Downstream as the opening video for a University of Nevada sponsored youth video contest -- of course I said yes.  The contest entrants are in the age range from 7th to 12th grade, and their short videos feature the Carson River Watershed.

As International Rivers has come to use video and other multimedia more in recent years, it is nice to see the next generation of river protectors taking up the cause. 

Take a look at a few of their videos and vote on your favorite.  The winner gets five hundred dollars, not a bad prize for a high school student!
