Planet Connect Contest Banner 

No matter where you live, there are ways your city or town can “go greener” through the innovative use of your Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills.

Planet Connect, the youth engagement initiative of the National Environmental Education Foundation, knows exactly how creative and environmentally knowledgeable today’s students are.  Therefore, Planet Connect has a new challenge for U.S. high school students:

 Show us how you can Green Your City. 

What’s an idea using Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) that can help green your city? 

Planet Connect and Staples want HS students to demonstrate in a 30 second – 120 second video how one or more of the elements of STEM can help green your city or town.  What have you learned in the classroom about how science, technology, engineering, or math could be used to help make your town or city greener, more sustainable and a model for 21st century living?

Planet Connect has partnered with Staples to host the third Get Green Video Contest, a national contest designed for high school students, aged 14 to 19, to display their creativity and environmental/STEM knowledge while helping to inspire the public and their peers.  Prizes include cash, a Samsung Galaxy Tab, a Netbook, and an HD camcorder!  This year’s Get Green Video Contest winners will also have the opportunity for their videos to be broadcast on national television, through the Eco Company TV show!  The deadline to enter is 3 PM EST on December 8, 2011. 

Learn more about the contest, read about how cities are already going greener using elements of STEM, and watch the contest promo video here:  http://planet-connect.org/getgreenvideocontest.
