We are pleased to announce that ten students of West Roxbury Academy have won Honorable Mention in MWRA’s Annual Video Contest. This year’s theme was “It’s a Toilet, not a Wastebasket!”
For the video contest, students were invited to participate individually or in teams.
The Honorable Mention winning teams from West Roxbury Academy were:
Jordan Breveleri, Rahgi Carter and Jovan Perry
Tesfay Hishe, Carlos Barbosa, Jimmy Paul, Jr. and Albert Jimenez
James Philiossaint, Daniel McCann, Jr., and Crystal Garcia
This year, students across the MWRA service area were challenged to create short videos, posters and essays to promote the importance of flushing responsibly. Nearly 4,000 students entered.
All of the winning posters and essays are available for viewing on www.mwra.com and at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum through the July 4th weekend. All of the top videos are posted on MWRA's YouTube page.
MWRA honored the winning students, their teachers and families at an awards ceremony held at the Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant on Friday, May 23. Ceremony photos are posted on flickr.
