Due February 28th, 2017 - The Mining Association of Nova Scotia is looking for videos from junior high and high school Nova Scotia students on why mining matters. Today's mining and quarrying industry is a sophisticated, high tech business that is vital to the economy and it's a very different industry than in the past. Mining contributes to many things used in daily activites, from houses to electronics to food production. You can’t build things like homes, roads, schools and hospitals without the materials taken from the ground. Without mining you wouldn’t have iPods, cellphones, or laptops!
Your video can explore a range of aspects about the industry, including economic importance, employment opportunities, environment and reclamation, historical facts, beneficial end-uses of mining products or pretty much anything else that you find interesting about the industry.
There are endless topics or themes you could explore. Have fun with it, be inspired, creative, edgy, funny, serious, musical, dramatic, weird, silly or anything else you want. Make your video stand out from the crowd!
Entries should be no longer than 3 minutes in length, with the exception of the '30 Second Commercial', which should be 30 seconds. Remeber, you can enter more than one video.
