The San Joaquin Valley Air District is asking for the public’s help in determining which video is the best illustration of Healthy Air Life.


The Valley Air District received several high-caliber entries for the third annual competition, which encourages creative student videographers and their teachers to illustrate an aspect of Healthy Air life.  The district selected three finalists, and the public is being asked to vote online to select a winner.


The grand prize winner will receive an iPad and have his or her video aired on a local TV station.


“This contest has grown remarkably in the past three years, both in the number of entries and their quality,” said Jaime Holt, the Valley Air District’s Chief Communications Officer. “We’re delighted that the message of making one change for clean air has been so enthusiastically and creatively received.”


The annual contest ran from February to June of this year. Participants were asked to answer the question, “What’s your change?” for air quality in a 30-second video. Entries poured in from all over the Valley, demonstrating the simple lifestyle changes Valley residents are making for improvements in air quality.  


To view the top three entries and vote for your favorite, visit Viewers may vote as many times as they want. Voting will close at 5 p.m. on July 7. The winner will be announced on July 11.


The contest grand prize was sponsored through a partnership with the San Joaquin Valley Citizens Advisory Group of Industry.
