Scotties Facial Tissue is holding their 4th annual Trees ROCK! Video and Essay contest to increase environmental education in schools. Kids in grades 3-5th or 6-8th create a 3 minute (or less) video about the importance of trees and win $10,000 for their school.
Scotties created the Trees Rock program out of a passion for the environment and a desire to share the message of sustainability to students. Despite the decline in environmental education at schools, studies have proven that learning about nature enhances “critical thinking and basic life skills” along with establishing “increased engagement and enthusiasm for learning and reduced discipline and classroom management problems”. An increase in environmental education not only helps students in science, but in other subjects such as reading and math. Scotties has conducted outdoor classes and tree plantings throughout the country and seen firsthand the passion and excitement from young people when they learn about the world around them.
Video submissions for this year have closed but check out some of the amazing videos from finalists last year. However, there is still time to enter an essay. Submit your essay by February 6, 2015 and you could win great prizes.
