Want to go to ISRI’s Annual Convention in New Orleans?
Due January 20th, 2017 - The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) and JASON Learning are teaming up once again to invite young filmmakers, artists, and recycling advocates to participate in a poster and video contest to build recycling awareness. There are two video contest themes to choose from:
Recycling Video Contest Option #1: Recycling is “Bigger than the Bin!”
Most of the recycling we see today happens in the blue bin at your house. We recycle our paper, newspapers, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and steel food cans by placing them in the blue bin and putting it on the curb once a week. But what about those things that are “Bigger than the Bin” — how are those recycled? Your challenge is to choose an item that is “Bigger than the Bin” and find a way to recycle it!
Create an original video that tells the story of how you recycled your chosen item. What was your thought process, and show the steps you took to solve this recycling challenge. Your video should educate and inspire others to think more carefully, and act differently, the next time they need to discard an item that is “bigger than the bin!"
Your “bigger than the bin” item must include more than one of the following commodities:
- nonferrous metals
Recycling Video Contest Option #2: “Recycling Career Role Models”
Your challenge is to connect with a professional working in the recycling industry who is an ISRI member, interview them to learn about their work and career path, and share what you learn! To find ISRI member companies the search engine on the ISRI website.
The video must be no more than 2 minutes in length for either option.
