Most of us now have access to cameras and smartphones with the capability of taking video. Take advantage of this and use your creative abilities to make a short video expressing the beauty and importance of Texas native plants.
This year the Native Plant Society of Texas is sponsoring a contest for short videos organized around a choice of one the following three themes.
- Native Plants = Healthy Habitats – The relationship and interdependence of native plants and wildlife.
- Bring Back the Monarchs to Texas – The Monarch butterfly migration in Texas and its dependence on native plants such as milkweed and nectar plants.
- My Native Plant Project – Show and tell about a project you or your chapter is doing to promote or conserve native plants or habitats.
To enter the contest send an .mp4 or YouTube ready video file to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15, 2016. A judging period will take place from September 16th through September 30th, 2016. The winning video in each category will be recognized during the 2016 Fall Symposium in October.
Videos should be at least 45 seconds in length and no more than 5 minutes maximum.
All videos will be posted on the Native Plant Society of Texas Playlist on YouTube. They may also be posted on the Society website and social media pages.
