Competition Rules and Guidelines
Official Entry Form

Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to enter.

Motivation:

The AEESP Student Video Competition seeks to highlight environmental engineering and science to increase awareness about the field and encourage young people to learn more about stewardship of water, land, air, mineral, and energy resources. The theme of the competition is “The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency turns 50”. Some ideas for video topics include:

  • What does 50 years of the EPA means to you?
  • How has the EPA improved your quality of life?
  • What might life in the U.S. look like without the EPA?

Even if you have no experience making videos, we encourage you to form a team and consider entering the competition.  Many university libraries provide access to audiovisual recording equipment and editing software.  For tips on making, and uploading, YouTube videos, check out the following link:  http://www.youtube.com/yt/creators/.

 *The Environmental Engineering and Science Foundation (EESF) is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization associated with the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES)

Eligibility:

The competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students studying environmental engineering or science worldwide.  At least one team member or Faculty Advisor must be a member of the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) or the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES). All team members must be enrolled in a college or university at the deadline for video submission.
