LITTER QUITTERS VIDEO PROJECT
The Video Project is a litter abatement project for public high schools within watershed basins. It eallmploys a video competition to engage the students and, by extension their families and communities, in efforts to reduce litter along their roadsides and in their streams. The Litter Quitters Committee will provide participating high schools with presentations explaining the causes and effects of litter, promoting involvement in existing roadside and creekside cleanup programs, and explaining the video competition. Those schools who have submitted their participation form will allow their students to submit anti-litter videos to their school’s Project Coordinator who will choose one video to submit in the competition.
Each school’s video will be posted on this website. The 3 videos in each sub-basin receiving the most "likes" will win monetary prizes for their schools. When our media partners allow, the Committee will also coordinate a media day in which students will be recorded for a special PSA commercial to be aired later in the year. This PSA will feature one student (selected by the school coordinator) from each participating school. The Committee hopes this will enable students to become change agents within their spheres of influence while increasing awareness of the problems with roadside litter across Jefferson County. It also aims to enhance education and outreach activities already taking place in the each watersheds.
Schools are separated into three different watershed zones: North, East, and West.
Each watershed zone will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
