Chico, Calif.--Zachary Almand and Jakobie Rhodes are seniors at the school and came in second place for the annual Special Districts Student Video contest.

About 20 students participated in the state-wide contest where they submitted a 60-second video aimed at increasing public awareness on California's special districts, which provide services like water and energy, garbage removal and much more to communities like Chico.

In their video, Almand and Rhodes highlighted the Chico Area Recreation and Park District in hopes of encouraging their peers to go out and enjoy the city's parks.

When asked what they enjoyed most about this process, the students said "We always like going out and shooting, just everything, we like going out into the community. I'd like to say just the experience, going out, yeah,"

Almand said he has plans of joining the military after high school, while Rhodes said he plans on going to Butte College.

The students wanted to thank their teachers and PV House of Blues video production class which taught them a lot of the skills they used to make their video.

Cooler and cloudier today, record heat expected today, then the chance for high fire danger or showers next week.
