This year was host to Colgate’s First Annual Greenest Videos Contest. Students and employees created and submitted short videos with an environmental theme. The Colgate community then voted for their favorites.
In total, six videos were submitted by Colgate students of all class years. 140 people voted for their favorite videos. The event culminated at Donovan’s Pub on October 22 (on National Teach-In day). About 70 students showed up for the awards ceremony and to watch the videos with fellow students. Everyone who attended received free pizza and a free organic cotton t-shirt. Though the videos ranged greatly in how informative they were, they all got the message across: going green can be easy, fun, and should be addressed on Colgate’s campus.
This contest will hopefully become an annual event. So get your ideas and videos ready for next year’s Greenest Videos Contest!
