LITTER QUITTERS VIDEO COMPETITION
The Video Competition is a litter abatement project for public high schools within watershed basins. It employs 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. This competition is offered and open to all public high schools located within Jefferson County regardless of school system. 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 during a 12 day time frame. The 3 videos in each sub-basin receiving the most "likes" will win monetary prizes for their schools. The prizes are awarded to the schools allowing them to utilize it as they see fit.
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.
If your school is interested in participating, contact our committee to find out more information and who your school liaison on our committee will be.
Hear why teachers and students love this project, straight from them!
