Everything is different in a pandemic, and our annual Grayson LandCare(GLC) contest for high school students (grades 9-12) is no exception! This year we are turning it over to YOU ( the students)to share your creative ideas with selected judges and with the public. The Grayson LandCare Video Challenge asks you to make a 5-10 minute video of an idea that would make our county better; economically, environmentally, or as a community. Rural areas like ours are facing many challenges, and we encourage you to search TED talks, You-Tube and other media for examples of how people are addressing these challenges. Then find a creative way to present what YOU think could be done in Grayson County.
All videos will be posted on the GLC YouTube channel. A committee of judges will review all entries and select 10 videos for final judging. This will include a brief interview via ZOOM. The 3 videos will be awarded cash prizes. In addition, to increase awareness and enthusiasm for your ideas, the public is invited and encouraged to vote for the People’s Choice winner. Prizes are as follows:
1st place $1000
2nd place $500 People’s Choice $500
3rd place $250
Stay tuned for the final details on how to submit your entry!
