Crossings Christian School Students Win Statewide Anti-Litter Video Contest
Keep Oklahoma Beautiful recently recognized Amanda Johnson and Julie Sauer of Crossings Christian School for their End Litter Video. End Litter is a statewide contest for high school and college students to engage others in the fight against littering through a creative video.
Contestants are asked to grab their video cameras and develop a 30 second PSA to convey that littering is costly, deplorable, illegal and harmful to Oklahoma.
Through wide-angle shots the video showcases Oklahoma’s beautiful landscape describing what “Oklahoma is” and ultimately what it isn’t – a place for litter and trash. Johnson and Sauer are students of Beth Hickey who teaches Speech and Creative Writing at Crossing Christian School.
A ceremony was held on March 28, 2016 to recognize the students for their hard work and creativity. Mike Patterson, Oklahoma Department of Transportation Director and Jeanette Nance, Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Executive Director presented the students with the monetary prize.
End Litter is sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. Winning groups receive a $750 prize. Additionally, Oklahoma State Parks donates a night’s stay to the teacher of the winning group.
The students will be recognized at the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful 26th Annual Environmental Excellence Celebration to be held November 17, 2016.
“We are extremely proud of the videos this year's winners have created!” said Jeanette Nance.“Such talent is a pleasure to recognize. Congratulations to our 2015 winners, great work!”
Keep Oklahoma Beautiful is a statewide nonprofit with a mission to empower Oklahoma citizens to preserve and enhance the state’s natural beauty and ensure a healthy, sustainable environment.
