Video Contest Opportunity

Message from Sarah Thomas, Outreach and Events Specialist

I’m writing on behalf on the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS) at the University of Washington. We’re calling on Washington state high school and undergraduate college students to enter our UW Climate Change Video Contest, and we’re hoping you can help spread the word! Our goal is to recognize and promote the creative voices of future environmental leaders, so we are asking students: What does climate change mean to you? The first place prize is $5K!

Videos must be 3 minutes or less and can take on any format imaginable—Claymation, music video, film noir mystery, ballet, stand-up comedy routine, rock opera, documentary…and everything else in between.

A panel of climate scientists, artists and filmmakers will judge the top 10 videos—five from the high school category and five from the undergraduate college/university category. The lucky finalists will get see their hard work on the big screen and meet the judges at a public screening and award ceremony where the winners will be announced.

We’re excited to see what Washington students have to say about climate change, and we hope you can encourage your students to participate!
