In April, RE3.org partnered with the Asheboro High School Zoo School and Union County Early College to create some videos depicting the link between recycling and climate change. By recycling we save energy, which decreases the amount of greenhouse gases sent into the atmosphere. There was a winner from each school.
Asheboro High School Zoo School Winners:
Congratulations to the creators of “Can Life Cycle-Recycling Climate Change,” for winning the 2010 DPPEA Climate Change Video Contest! Students Patrick Clifton, Chris Williams, Nolan Wilson, Zach Foust and Kirby Moffitt of Rhonda Dillingham’s electronics journalism class produced a video that creatively portrayed the lifecycle of a recycled aluminum can.
Union County Early College Winners:
Congratulations to the creators of “Recycling reduces pollution,” for winning the 2010 DPPEA Climate Change Video Contest! Students Jayenne, Jillian, Haydee and Melisa of Melissa Cook’s class produced a video that discussed how recycling reduces pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
All winners got a certificate and RE3.org T-shirt made from recycled plastic bottles. The winning videos and other entries can be viewed on YouTube.
