 GLOBE Community,

Get your video cameras ready – the Earth Day 2012 GLOBE Student Video Competition is about to begin! GLOBE Students from around the world are invited to submit a short video (2 minutes or less) showing how they are exploring and investigating their local climate using GLOBE protocols and learning activities. The GLOBE Program will be accepting submissions from 15 February to 15 March 2012. 

To get a top score, be sure to clearly define the GLOBE protocol and climate-focused learning activities, show students in action, include a transcript, and get the highest quality audio and video possible for your recording device. 

The top regional videos will be highlighted on the GLOBE website starting 16 April, and the top overall videos will be featured on Earth Day, 22 April.  A set of prizes will be awarded to winners from each GLOBE region.


Prizes include:

1st Place: A trophy, a GLOBE flag and the video highlighted on the GLOBE website

2nd Place: A plague and a GLOBE flag

3rd Place: A GLOBE flag

All videos will become part of the GLOBE YouTube video collection. 

Upload the video to YouTube, TeacherTube, Vimeo, or your favorite sharing website.  Email the link to the video, along with a written transcript, to climatecampaign@globe.govby 15 March 2012 5:00 pm MT (23:00 UTC).  Full consideration will be given to videos submitted by the deadline.
