Stormwater PSA Winners

The City of Raleigh's Stormwater Management Division, manages stormwater to protect the safety of people, reduce flooding of properties, and protect the health of lakes, wetlands, and streams, including the Neuse River. Much of the pollution in our streams and lakes comes from chemicals and wastes carried by urban stormwater runoff, with no treatment. An important part of the Division’s work is helping citizens realize that everyday choices we make can help or hinder the health of our water bodies.

As part of the City of Raleigh's prestigious Environmental Awards Program, the Stormwater Management Division sponsors a High School Public Service Announcement (PSA) Video Competition.

High school students are invited to showcase their creativity, talent, and environmental awareness by producing a video suitable for the City’s use as a public service announcement (PSA). Students may submit entries as individuals or as teams. All students must either reside or attend a high school within the City of Raleigh.
