Here's a fun and creative way for your child to win some prizes and may even win $10,000 for your school with the 5th Annual Scotties Trees Rock Contest.
Scotties just loves trees, in fact, they plant 3 trees for every 1 that they use. Because they love trees so much, Scotties is having a 'tree'rific video contest for kids to say how they love trees.
Children from 3rd to 6th grade can enter the video contest. All you child needs to do is get creative! Here's the first step for your child to get started: Think about why TREES ROCK! Does your school do something cool for the environment or community? Do you have a favorite tree?
Next all your child needs to do is to make a short 3-minute-or-less video. Keep it simple and get creative! Your can get some ideas and see sample videos at scottiestreesrock.com. Here's a start up guide to get your child motivated.
Once your child is finished, just upload it at scottiestreesrock.com. You or your child don’t have to be a video expert and you don’t need fancy equipment. THIS CONTEST IS FOR EVERYBODY! People from all over the country could see your video.
Here's a video showing the winning school from the 2015 contest. This school did a 'tree'rific job and won $10,000, your child's school could win, too!
The campaign, open to students in grades 3-6 provides them with environmental curriculum and tips about the many amazing things trees do in our community. To enter, students are encouraged to shoot a 1-3 minute video to tell Scotties why trees are so important. The grand prize winner (determined by a national vote) will receive $10,000 to use on a sustainable project at their school.
All videos are to be submitted by November 13, 2015 at www.ScottiesTreesRock.com. The top 10 finalists will be announced in December 2015, and from there the videos will go to a national vote to determine the winner by early 2016. Prize money will be awarded at a celebratory event in April / May of 2016.
