Deadline: January 23, 2015
The Trust for Sustainable Living is pleased to announce a new international contest for schools, alongside their International Schools Essay Competition & Debate. Teacher Champions are invited to submit short videos showcasing their schools’ best sustainability projects. Participating schools are invited to create a short (max. 3 minute) video showcasing their best sustainability-related project or collection of projects.
The Schools Sustainability Challenge will recognize and reward the sustainability action and leadership of schools around the world, and the winning school will receive the Trust for Sustainable Living’s Schools Sustainability Challenge Trophy, together with a cash prize of £500 or equivalent.
Are you a student or teacher? You can register to participate in the 2015 International Schools Essay Competition & Debate.
- The winning school will be awarded the Trust for Sustainable Living’s Schools Sustainability Challenge Trophy and a cash prize of £500 (or equivalent in local currency) to support the school’s future sustainability initiatives.
The Schools Sustainability Challenge will be judged on the quality of the projects featured in the videos, and their potential replicability around the world. The number of views of the videos on Youtube will also be taken into account during the judging process.
- Each Teacher Champion may submit one video (maximum length: 3 minutes). Please note that videos longer than three minutes will be disqualified and only one video can be submitted per school.
- Video submissions must be uploaded to Youtube and Teacher Champions will be asked to provide the relevant Youtube link. Please ensure that the following information is included in the title of your Youtube video: “SCHOOL NAME – COUNTRY – Submission for the 2015 Trust for Sustainable Living Schools Sustainability Challenge”.
