ECO Canada is hosting its 2nd annual Video Contest

Last year Eco-conscious high school students from across Canada were challenged to submit a video outlining an environmental issue in their community. In June 2010, four schools were awarded funds to help implement eco-friendly initiatives and green their school.

 

The second annual ECO Action! Video Contest is now open to students from grades 9-12 and will be awarding $2,000 to the winning teams. This national contest is designed to get students thinking about environmental issues, proposing solutions for a greener community, and exploring potential careers in the ever expanding environmental sector.

 

Last year’s winning schools included:

  • École Secondaire Lacombe Composite High School, Lacombe, Alberta
  • Holy Cross High School, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
  • Lester B. Pearson High School, Gloucester, Ontario
  • Holy Trinity High School, Torbay, Newfoundland

 

Winning participants proposed practical and creative solutions to reduce consumer waste, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, lower energy consumption, and lessen the impact of rapid population growth. “It was rewarding to watch the students bring this project to life,” said Charles Deighton, a teacher at Lester B. Pearson Catholic High School. “The students learned a lot about environmental issues and how they can make a difference.” To view last years winning videos or for more information on eligibility and contest rules, go to www.eco.ca/videocontest.

 

Entry forms must be in by January 31, 2011. All video submissions are to be submitted by March 31, 2011.
