Want your school to be Greener?

This is more than a video contest — it’s taking action and making a difference!

Create a short video (1-2 minutes) to show us why your school wants help turning food scraps into valuable natural fertilizer! Do you already compost at school? What’s working and what’s not? Need help starting? Show us why!

Hey Teachers! This could be a great classroom project!

Win cash prizes and everything your school needs to start composting! In return, your school needs to commit to 2 years of composting, with the help of Green Action Centre.

Get creative! Any student, group/club, classroom, or school in Winnipeg and surrounding areas (must be in the Manitoba Capital Region) can enter. There are two categories:

  • Kindergarten to Grade 6 
  • Grades 7 to 12

Five winning videos will be selected, with at least one from each category.
