WCS Supports West Van Student Video Contest

The District of West Vancouver challenged students this year from Kindergarten to Grade 12 to create and submit short videos demonstrating that using the Green Can is easy, and an important habit to help divert food scraps from landfill.

Over 100 students registered to participate, and 35 videos made by individuals and groups were entered in the contest. The videos were exceptionally creative and demonstrated that looking after the environment is important to West Vancouver students.

The Waste Control Services team was honored to participate in reviewing entries alongside members of Council and school district staff. Judging criteria included creativity, clarity of the message, and whether the students displayed an understanding of the theme. Waste Control services was also happy to sponsor the contest and prizes this year. Check out the winning video and runner-ups:
