If an effort to educate the community and improve the city’s recycling efforts, The City of Parkland Community Advisory Board is challenging students to create a video encouraging proper recycling habits.

Mayor Christine Hunschofsky wants to improve recycling and limit contamination in the city and said the contest is a fun way to get students involved in educating the community on how to do it properly.

Whether a skit, song, or jingle, the entries will be judged on creativity, educational content, and accuracy.

The student producer must do all screenwriting, directing, camera work, and editing, and all students must reside in the City of Parkland or attend a Parkland school, and filming must take place in the City of Parkland.

Videos must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 28. Apply online and complete the entry form here.
