For middle school parents and teachers on the North Olympic Peninsula:
To supplement the national contest described below, Olympic Climate Action is offering a $50 cash prize for the best short (30-120 seconds) video on climate change submitted by a middle-school student on the North Olympic Peninsula. Rules:
· Entries must have been submitted to the national contest described below.
· After entry in the national contest, entries should be submitted by the students’ teachers, to email@example.com, by March 21, 2014, along with parental consent forms. The same parental consent form used by the EPA will work, substituting OCA for EPA.

· If multiple students worked on the prize-winning video, the amount awarded may exceed $50, at the discretion of Olympic Climate Action.

National Climate Change Video Contest
The EPA and National Environmental Education Foundation have launched a new video contest that asks middle school students to produce a short video about why they care about climate change and what they are doing about it. Deadline March 18. http://epa.gov/climatestudents/contest.html
Here are some images from Presidents Day week 2014, when Mike, Zoe, and Stella Foster came to the Olympic Peninsula as climate ambassadors, visiting schools and planting trees and shrubs.
