Tree’s rock, don’t they? I remember making a video for my 3rd grade K12 students and I read them a book about a mom who hugs trees. The kids loved it and because I was virtual teacher I couldn’t read it to them in person so a video was a perfect way to share a story I loved and my passion for the environment. I love videos because they allow you to be creative and share with other your thoughts, passions and views and your audience can see your facial expression and hear the tone in your voice.
Scotties Facial Tissues have launched a fun video and essay contest open to students in grades 3rd -8th and they’re inviting students to make a short video (or essay) answering the questions, “Why do trees rock?”
The video can be many things…
- A skit
- A song
- A dance
- A speech
- A jingle
- A poem
- An interpretive dance
The more creative the better and the in each group, the grand prize winner (determined by a national vote) will win $10,000 for their school to use towards a sustainable project. The remaining 10 finalists in both groups will not leave empty-handed either and can walk away with prizes ranging up to $7,000. What could your school do with $10,000 for a sustainable project? The sky’s the limit and I know there are a lot of creative kids out there, I’ve seen the finalists from last year and wow! And if video isn’t a student’s thing, they can write an essay too and possibly win $250 in gift cards. So there is an opportunity for everyone to be creative in their own way and share their passion for trees and the environment!
