The Omaha Public Power District is again sponsoring Project Greenflick, a video contest for aspiring high school filmmakers. The theme of the films should be energy efficiency or management.
The contest is open to all high school students, individuals or groups, age 13 and above. Videos should be no longer than 60 seconds and must be filmed in high definition (many cellphones have acceptable capability) or BluRay. They will be judged on creativity and overall educational quality.
Enter between Sept. 1 and Oct. 11. An entry form is on OPPD’s Facebook page. Visit OPPD.com/greenflick for more information or to view past video submissions.
The prize for the winning film is $500, second place earns $250 and third place $100. Winning students’ schools will receive matching awards. This year, a people’s choice winner, chosen with Facebook votes, will also win $100 each for the filmmakers and their school. Voting runs Oct. 14 through 27. Winners will be announced in November.
