The contest asked students to create and submit a 30-second video answering the question: If you were in control of the world, what actions would take to improve the health of the planet?

Governor John Carney stated that he is proud of the young people who took part in the DNREC Earth Day contest. They showed us how small and large ways we can improve the planet’s health on Earth Day and every other day, from picking up litter to recycling to planting trees at your school or neighborhood. We wish to congratulate all the contest participants and look forward to seeing the positive effects you make on our state’s environment and future generations.

Shawn M. Garvin (DNREC Secretary) stated that the mission of the organization is to protect human health as well as the environment. Part of that mission includes educating the public about historic, cultural, and natural resources. The video contest was hosted by DNREC Secretary Shawn M. Garvin to allow students to voice their concerns and suggest solutions to environmental problems that they face today and in the near future. These videos demonstrate their willingness to take on leadership roles in the environmental field and make a positive difference.

All Delaware students could participate in the Earth Day Video Contest. It was open to all grades and was judged in three grade groups: K through 4, 5, through 8, and 9 through12. Judging was based on how well the videos represented the following criteria: message/theme, visual effectiveness, originality/creativity and universal appeal. The judging panel included Sheraea Moore, educator and State Representative; Maddy Lauria (freelance environmental journalist); Jackie Knoll (head environmental educator at the Center for the Inland Bays); and Mike Polo (DNREC videographer).
