Trashy Tech Club Kids Win Recycling Video Competition


photo (11)A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about “The Monster Trash”, a video my BAMS Tech Club students produced and then entered into the Intermunicipal Relations Committee’s Recycling Video Competition. Well, the results have been tabulated and the winner is… Yep, you got it! Those trashy kids of mine managed to win yet another contest—Boom!

My students and I learned of this super exciting news during an Awards Ceremony at an Earth Day event held on Saturday, April 26 at the Logan Valley Mall. Not only did the students earn a very cool plaque and an ice cream party, but their winning video will be entered into the State Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania Film Fest Contest for a chance to win a cash prize. In addition, the submission will be used in future public outreach and education programs. Is that just way cool or what?

If you missed my previous post, please take a few minutes to check out the “Monster Trash”, a humorous spin on how recycling works in our school. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did! Besides being quite creative, it’s really pretty funny!

Here’s what Aubree had to say about our victory: “I am very proud that the Tech Club won the video competition because I think our video really explained the point of the recycling contest.”

Kermit added, “I think that out of all of the videos we made, this one was the best one yet. We worked for many hours during and after school to make this video.”

I have to agree with Kermit! This video was the bomb diggity! Not only was it an absolute blast to make, but I was very impressed with the stop animation scenes my students created. Could I be any prouder of them and their terrific efforts? Nope, because they never cease to amaze me! ♥
