Video developed for contest highlights Longwood's sustainability efforts

December 2, 2008

Longwood University staff members Robin Dickson, Kelly Martin and Louise Waller and student Amanda Thomas collaborated on developing a video to enter in the National Wildlife Federation’s Chill Out: Campus Solutions to Global Warming video competition. Colleges and universities across the nation compete annually by creating a three-minute video showcasing how their institution is confronting climate change. Two winners will be selected, each of which will receive a $500 grant and five “Campus Climate Challenge” T-shirts, and the winning video will be featured in a multimedia broadcast in April 2009.

Everyone is encouraged to vote by watching the video and clicking on “Vote Now” below the video in the green bar. Forty percent of the judging is based on the number of combined views and votes from the online community, with the remaining 60 percent based on NWF’s judging of video content. Only one vote per IP address is allowed. Voting began Dec. 1, 2008 and will end Feb. 1, 2009. For more information about the competition, visit www.nwf.org/campusEcology/chillout. Dickson is a multimedia specialist, Martin is sustainability coordinator, Waller is space planning and real property manager, and Thomas is a recycling coordinator
