ERA’s 1st Video Competition

ERA hosts their first Video Competition that will launch this fall! We are asking students in Middle Schools and High Schools across Canada to use their creative minds. This competition is designed to not only educate students on the importance of sustainability but to bring their vision of an ever-changing environment to video.

How does it work?

To enter the contest, create a video that best represents your views on the waste hierarchy known to many as “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”. Please relay the video in some way to ERA’s mission statement.

ERA’s Mission Statement: To reduce electronic waste and the negative impact it has on our environment, and to reuse unwanted computers and related electronic equipment through recovery, refurbishment, and computer donation programs

This competition is vote based, which means the student with the most votes will win ― so you better stand out from the rest.

Who is eligible to participate?

To join the competition all you need to do is be a Student attending a Middle School or High School across Canada.

What will I win?

There will be 100 winners per 1000 schools that enter. The winner will receive a refurbished laptop. The winners will need to give ERA some time to provide them with the winning laptops.

How to enter?

To officially enter this competition your school must submit all of their student’s creative videos, add the name of your school, add the school address (no PO Box) and add the contact information of the teachers involved.

Notice: Please be sure to include accurate information in the application. If we are able to reach you or verify the information, this may result in disqualification.
