Submit a video of students making their strongest argument for why everyone should recycle and what efforts your school has gone to this year to make it more environmentally friendly.


The video challenge invites the school, students,

teachers, staff, administration and parents to reflect

on not only the basics of recycling, but of

sustainability, resource conservation, and

environmental stewardship. This activity will

empower students and facilitators to demonstrate how

their school is conserving resources, reducing

pollution, and increasing the life of Horry County's

landfill by encouraging increased recycling

participation in their schools. The contest will also

serve as a learning tool for participating students

by providing lessons in ecology, art, drama,

technology, marketing and team work.
