We will sponsor a college scholarship for the best produced student video that addresses a current major environmental issue. The first contest will end on June 30, 2015. The scholarship will start at $5,000 for each period where we have sufficient entries. The entries will be judged by a panel of environmentalists, industry representatives and a person with a balanced approach to environmental issues. Good luck and we look forward to seeing your entries.
Funding the scholarship
The main source of funding the scholarships is through the purchase of goods from our sponsors and by providing help to our science sponsors. A portion of the proceeds from your purchase will go directly to the scholarship. Please help support both the scholarship and these organizations by shopping with the links provided on the sponsors’ page.
