North Carolina’s Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance announces the 2009 RE3.org Recycling Commercial Contest for high school students. Students may submit a 30 second ad to be aired across North Carolina on cable television. The ad must have a recycling message geared toward other high school students, but how the message is delivered is entirely up to the entrants. We’re looking for original and unique submissions, so entrants have complete creative license.
Entrants MUST be in high school. Any high school group (i.e. Environmental Club), high school class (i.e. Miss Harris’s 3rd period yearbook class), or high school student (i.e. Bobby’s senior project) may enter as long as the teacher or group leader over 18 years of age submits the entry. Only one entry per high school group/class/student please. Submissions must be received by March 30, 2009. The winning entry will have its commercial aired on cable television throughout the state, plus all members of the winning group will receive a prize pack from the sponsors (approximate retail value of $100) and the high school or high school group will receive a $500 Amex gift card.
