Juried Ecological Student Video Festival




The nonprofit School & Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education (SCARCE) is hosting a world language film festival for high school and college students on April 23 at the Studio Movie Grill, in Wheaton. This environmentally themed project, funded by the Illinois Science & Energy and Innovation Foundation (ISEIF), will award cash prizes resulting from a juried competition.

         Talented student teams from area high schools and colleges have been making short videos about the new electric smart meters in world languages. The purpose of the festival is to reach out to DuPage County’s immigrant populations that speak in native languages or use English as a second language, so that all residents can participate in smarter energy use.

For more information, call Kay McKeen at 630-545-9710, email Kay@scarce.org or visit scarce.org/film-festival/ to vote on your favorite video.
