Deadline for environmental sustainability video presentations extended to Oct. 20

Oct. 13, 2009----The deadline to submit video presentations to be shown during Student Environmental Sustainability Day on Thursday, Oct. 22, has been extended to Tuesday, Oct. 20.

Submitted videos, which should have a focus on environmental sustainability in the community, will stream in Memorial Hall during the daylong activities, which will take place on The Green. Topics can include issues such as sustainable energy, policy or any other related aspect that students would like to address.

Throughout the day, all video entries will be shown; however, only three will be selected as finalists. The top three groups will receive a $300 scholarship voucher that can be used for books or other student-related expenses.

Student Environmental Sustainability Day is part of three days of events leading up to the launch of the Delaware Environmental Institute at the University of Delaware on Friday, Oct. 23. The day will include a student symposium of undergraduate concern for environmental issues.

In order to participate in the event, e-mail an abstract of no more than 250 words about your video to [lpisarcz@udel.edu]. Video submissions are limited to three people per group.

Videos should be approximately five minutes in length.
