A committee of Ames-area residents has announced a $5,000 cash prize for the top video submission in a contest focused on raising awareness of global climate change. Anyone can enter, but act fast, as the submission deadline is approaching quickly.
The Iowa Climate Prize contest aims to raise awareness of the impact of humans on climate change and create a sense of urgency to act to control global warming. The Iowa Climate Prize Committee (ICPC) solicits the development of short, compelling videos on climate change that encourage immediate action to reduce greenhouse gases. The videos will be posted on YouTube and the video receiving the most views during the contest will be awarded $5000.
The Iowa Climate Prize is managed independently of the Iowa Environmental Council by a committee of Ames-area residents. The Council serves as fiscal agent for the prize.
