End Litter Contest FAQs

What is the max number of students permitted to work on one project?

There is a limit of six (6) students that can work on one entry. However, the prize money will be divided equally among the participants. If a student enters individually, they will be in the running for the full $1,250 prize. If six students create the winning video, the prize money would be split to give each student $208. 

Is the prize money awarded directly to the students?

Yes, checks are made out to the students. 

Does each student featured in the video have to fill out a consent form?

Yes, each student who is featured in the video must complete their own consent form. If the student is a minor, their consent form must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Do you have an example of what student videos should include?

You can find past submissions on the KOB Youtube channel. We encourage you to let these videos inspire you to create your own ideas, but any video that too closely resembles a past video will be disqualified. Resemblance to past videos is subject to the objective opinion of KOB staff and judges. If you are worried your video idea could be considered plagiarism, please email to ask. 

I have submitted entries in the past, can I enter again this year?

Yes! We encourage you to continue submitting entries each year that you are an eligible student! However, students must create a new video and may not “re-submit” a previous entry. 

Can students submit more than one video entry?

Unfortunately, no. We ask that students funnel all of their ideas into one project. If you have members of your class who would like to work on an individual or small group project, they should not work on the class project. They will also need to register separately!

I have a question not answered above, who do I talk to?

If you have a question that is not answered above or in the Official Rules and Guidelines, please call our office at (405) 286-9141 or send an email to
