TSL 2018 Schools Sustainability Challenge
The TSL Schools Sustainability Challenge is a video contest for schools around the world, organised in parallel with the TSL International Schools Essay Competition & Debate.
Participating schools are invited to create a short (3 minute) video showcasing their best sustainability-related projects.
The Schools Sustainability Challenge recognises and rewards the sustainability action and leadership of schools around the world, and the winning school is awarded the Schools Sustainability Challenge Trophy, together with a cash prize of £500 or equivalent.
Video judging takes place at the end of May, about one month before the Schools Debates.
The Schools Sustainability Challenge is judged on the quality of the projects featured in the videos and their potential replicability around the world. Views of the videos on Youtube before mid-May 2018 are also taken into account during the judging process. Viewers are invited to show their support by viewing and ‘liking’ their favourite video entries on Youtube before mid-May 2018.
Video submissions must be uploaded to Youtube and Teacher Champions will be asked to provide the relevant Youtube link. Please ensure that the following information is included in the title of your Youtube video: “TSL 2018 Schools Sustainability Challenge”.
The winning school will be awarded the Trust for Sustainable Living’s Schools Sustainability Challenge Trophy and a cash prize of £500 (or equivalent in local currency) to support the school’s future sustainability initiatives. The winner will be announced at the TSL 2018 International Schools Debate and Awards in the Seychelles (2-7 July, 2018).
