LITTER QUITTERS VIDEO PROJECT
The Video Project is a litter abatement project for public high schools within watershed basins. It will employ a YouTube 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 the existing Valley Creek Cleanup Program, and presenting the video competition. Students will 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 YouTube on the Committee's "Litter Quitters" YouTube Channel. The 3 videos in each sub-basin receiving the most "likes" will win monetary prizes for the submitting schools. 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. . 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 will be an enhancement of education and outreach activities already taking place in the each watersheds.
