Earth Day 2019 School Video Competition

Earth day kids past

CENTREVILLE – Queen Anne's County Department of Public Works is having a contest for local schools to create a video showing how you can celebrate Earth Day.

 “Each school that participates submits one video for that school, 1 per school, that promotes ways to celebrate Earth Day,” said Connie Toulson, who oversees Queen Anne’s County’s recycling efforts.  “The students need to create a 60 second maximum video showing their idea. videos will need to be submitted by March 18th and please remember when picking a song for the video that some songs cannot be used due to copyright rules.” Toulson suggests entrants check out availability of songs at policies?ar=2.

The videos submitted by each school will be placed on the Department of Public Works Facebook page from March 25th to April 8th. “The video that gets the most "likes" in each of the three levels (Elementary, Middle, and High School) will be the winner,” said Toulson. The three winners will be announced on April 12.

 The winning three schools will each get a banner that can be displayed in the school that names them as having the Best Earth Day Video 2019. The winning three schools will also get recognition at the April 23rd Commissioner Meeting.

 If your school will be participating please notify Connie Toulson, Recycling Coordinator, by March 15th at (410)758-0925 or email
