Together we can tackle climate change. What would it take to turn the tide?

All Washington state high school and undergraduate students can answer that question with a short film for a chance at the $4,000 prize. The UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS) and EarthLab want your submissions of films that are two-minutes or less by the April 7, 2019 deadline.

Films can be submitted by individuals or teams, and can take on any genre. The judge's pick wins $4,000 and the people's choice earns a $2,500 prize.
