If you’ve ever driven through Southern Ontario on the 401, chances are pretty good you’ve noticed a sign indicating that you’re entering the Greenbelt.
This region of 1.8 million acres includes some of the most environmentally sensitive land in Ontario, such as the Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine, and is protected by law from encroaching urban development.
If you are between the ages of 16-29 and think that preserving green space is something to be proud of, you have a chance to win big in the Reel Greenbelt Video Competition! If eligible, all you have to do is create a 30-60 second public service announcement about the Greenbelt and upload it onto Youtube before the November 28 deadline for public voting.
Some of the great prizes include $1000 cash, and food baskets from a certified organic farm. Not to mention the winning videos will be shown at an international conference in March 2011, Greenbelts: Local Solutions for Global Challenges.
Get in on the action and make a difference! For more information on the video competition visit the contest website.
