SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Every year, South Coast Water District awards a scholarship to a high school student who lives in the District’s service area. For 2018, the scholarship was a video contest. The contest challenged students to create a video that educates people about the value of water.
This year’s winner was Alanni Perman with her video, “Somewhere over Orange County” a fresh twist on Israel “Iz” Kamakawiwoʻole’s song rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/ What a Wonderful World.”
Alanni, a Dana Point Resident, is a recent graduate of Dana Hills High School. Her video is posted on the District’s Website and on social media. She will be studying pre-med at University of California Santa Barbara in the fall. View the video at www.scwd.org/Alanni.
