Jason Learning Recycling Video & Poster Contest

Ages:Elementary, Middle School, High School

Type:Submission

Categories:Art, Community Service, Environment, video

Scope:National

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

Students in grades K–12 are invited to participate in a national recycling awareness contest sponsored by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) and JASON Learning. Students can submit either a video or poster submission responding to the annual theme. The 2018 theme is “Recycling is Bigger than the Bin!” Student videos should respond to the theme by promoting ways to recycle various materials.

Create an original video or poster that tells us the story of how you recycled your chosen item. Tell us about your thought process, and show us the steps you took to solve this recycling challenge. Your video or poster should educate and inspire others to think more carefully, and act differently, the next time they need to discard an item that is “bigger than the bin!” Create something amazing, and you could win our grand prize—a trip to ISRI’s annual convention.

Video Specifications

The video must be no more than 2 minutes in length. Use of copyrighted video, music, images, logos, and trademarks is prohibited; entries that contain any copyrighted materials will be disqualified unless written permission to use the materials is acquired and submitted to JASON along with the entry.

Poster Specifications

Each poster entry must be a two-dimensional, original piece of artwork done on white poster board with dimensions of 28 in. x 22 in. (71 cm x 56 cm). Any art medium may be used (e.g., colored pencils, crayons, or paint); however, computer graphics will not be accepted. Artwork must be hand-drawn by the entrant. Pale colors should not be used because they are too difficult to reprint. Also note that artwork must be flat (e.g., no glued pieces) and able to be scanned. Please note that any artwork that includes copyrighted or trademarked product names (e.g., Coca-Cola ®) will be disqualified. You must take a high-resolution (at least 3072 x 2304 pixels) digital photograph of your poster in order to submit your entry. One way to do this is to place your poster on the floor in a well-lit room and use a digital camera to take the picture from above.

Entries will be judged by a committee of representatives from the sponsoring organizations. Judges will evaluate each entry on the clarity and accuracy with which it portrays the process and challenges of recycling the chosen item into a reusable form, how well the entry’s message connects to people’s everyday lives, the creativity and originality of the entry, the quality of the entry, and the overall impression of the entry.

Poster finalists will be required to mail their original artwork upon being notified of their selection as finalists. The finalist videos and posters will be featured on JASON and ISRI websites.

Up to two grand-prize winners will be selected. Grand prize winners will receive a trip for one team representative and a parent/guardian chaperone to ISRI’s Annual Convention & Exposition to be held in Las Vegas in April 2018.

Trip costs covered include airfare for two (student plus parent/guardian chaperone) from a major airport, two nights at the ISRI Convention Hotel, and an ISRI Convention pass for one day, including lunch. In cases where a team (more than one individual) is chosen as the grand-prize winner, the team must choose one individual to represent the team at the conference; additional team members and/or chaperones can attend as well if the team raises the necessary funds on their own to cover their additional travel costs.
