Environmental awareness meets abounding creativity as SUNY Cobleskill students participate in the College’s Campus Earth Day YouTube Video Contest. A call to those passionate about protecting our planet, student participants were asked to create a YouTube video that conveys a practical way we can care for our environment, including recycling, reusing, and making different purchasing decisions. Considering message, quality of video production and creativity, five videos were selected by judges as the winners. Cash prizes were presented to the film producers on May 5, 2015 in Julie Casper Roth’s class. Their winning submissions can be viewed on the Sustainability Resources gallery on the college website or separately below.
