The BNT said, “Gather your classmates, members of your club, or ask your teacher if you can do it as a class project. Present your ideas for how you and your community can live in better harmony with other people and the environment.

“Create a two to four minute video that demonstrates what you think needs changing and how you think we might achieve it. Choose one of the following themes: “A Green Hero”, “Local Food“, “Sustainability in Bermuda”, “The Ocean Around Us”, or “The Value of Open Space”. Use your creativity to inspire others to follow your lead.”

The Bermuda National Trust is sponsoring this video competition to highlight the power of our actions and to raise awareness about the connection between the choices we make, the future of our island, and the future of the planet.

The spokesperson continued, “We want to see your stories, your ideas, and your actions. Teams may be supported by a member of the community, teacher, or mentor, but the majority of the work must be completed by the students.

“The groups will also have the opportunity to meet with the education team at the Bermuda National Trust to assist in developing their ideas, and may reach out for any resources they need.

“We will screen the videos in school assemblies during the week of Earth Day [April 22nd, 2014].”

Winners will receive prizes and their video projects will be featured on the Bermuda National Trust’s website and in a local film festival on Earth Day. The deadline is January 31, 2014.
