Last year we sponsored a video contest for the first time and it was a great success. So we are doing it again. Entries should be 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 email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get instructions for uploading your .mp4 or YouTube ready video file before October 8, 2017. Entries will be judged by a three-person panel led by Chief Judge Lonnie Childs. The winning video will be recognized during the 2017 Fall Symposium on November 3-4 in Huntsville.
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 YouTube channel. They may also be posted on our website and social media pages.
