Description

How do you convince a climate change skeptic to take action? Watch Washington state high school students tackle that question in a series of student-directed ads for the third UW Climate Change Video Contest, and see who snags the $5,000 grand prize!

We’re excited to welcome emcee Ashley Ahearn, award-winning environment reporter for KUOW, and keynote speaker Dr. Peter Kareiva, director of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA, along with a panel of four distinguished judges who will discuss the videos and announce the winners: Laura Jean Cronin, producer and director at B47 Studios; Dr. Melanie Harrison Okoro, water quality specialist and the aquatic invasive species coordinator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries, West Coast Region; Cody Permenter, social media manager at Grist.org, a nonprofit environmental news organization; and Ethan Steinman, director, producer and founder of Daltonic Films.
