A couple of months ago, Bodeker Scientific sponsored MAD4CO’s video competition for local schools.  Chris Cameron of Bodeker Scientific also helped in mentoring the students and judging the final videos.  

Year 12/13 students were encouraged to produce a 5-10 minute video that demonstrated their change in behaviour that was made in response to this project and that led to reducing the impact of climate change, improving sustainability and/or led to better protection of NZ’s unique environment.  The goal of the project was to encourage students to think critically about life choices concerning sustainability and protection of NZ’s environment.  There were a number of great entries to this competition and the videos are now available for viewing on YouTube (Camptastrophy, Ink Through the Pages, Now, Sustainability In Central Otago, The Changers, and The Simple Things).  Some of the videos also went on to be entered into the ‘Outlook for Someday’ film competition.

All of the films made were shown at each of the schools in full school assemblies and the films were also publicly shown at a screening held at the Alexandra Community Centre on 3rd August.  The winners were announced at the pubic screening.  The overall winner was the Dunstan High School team with the video 'Sustainability In Central Otago' (Conor Stumbles, Ben Elliot-Miller and Kirk Tamblyn).  Congratulations guys!  And well done to all the other entrants!  

Local media also covered the competition.
