The video contest, open to residents of Sarasota, Charlotte, and Manatee counties, asks contestants to create and submit a short video (two minute maximum) explaining: Youth (ages 8-17): If you were in charge of the world, what actions would you take to improve the health of our planet?; Young adults (ages 18-25): Create a demonstration video to show how you reused or upcycled something rather than throwing it away and how that benefited you and the environment. The winners will receive a $100 gift card; all participants will receive a certificate, free workshop ticket, and a reusable metal straw. For more details, visit the contest blogs: Youth http://tiny.cc/scw22video_youthcontest. Young Adult: http://tiny.cc/scw22video_adultcontest. All submissions are due by Wednesday, October 5.
