2016 State Educational Video Contest

Sponsored by the Wyoming Weed & Pest Council

We need your help! The Wyoming Weed & Pest Council is looking for educational content to help promote the PCG campaign within the state of Wyoming and potentially to a larger national audience. Accordingly we’d like to extend an invitation to the public, all Districts, as well as WWPC employees to create a short video to help us.

The PlayCleanGo campaign is a preventative outreach message that is meant to help elevate the issue of invasive species on a nation-wide scale. The intent is to provide people interacting with the outdoors with a clear call to action to become attentive and accountable for helping stop the spread of invasive plants, animals, insects, and pathogens.

Who: Any Wyoming resident that would like to help stop the spread of invasive species.

What: A 90 second or less video that creatively promotes the concept of PlayCleanGo to the targeted audience of outdoor enthusiasts. The video will need to have a brief introduction slide which includes the Wyoming Weed & Pest Council’s logo as well as the Play Clean Go logo. Additionally, each video is required to have a closing slide that includes the credits for who participated as well as references for any resources that require citation or credit. For ideas on types of messages please visit: www.PlayCleanGo.org

When: Videos will be due to the Education Committee by October 14, 2016 – so that they can be judged at the WWPC’s Fall Conference. Video delivery can be coordinated with Luke Sander luke@scweeds.com

Why: The winning video will receive $600, the next two runners up will receive $300, and the next two after that will receive $150 a piece. And of course, you’ll be elevating the issue of invasive species while helping educate the recreating public on how they can ‘stop invasive species in their tracks.’
