The online learning platform ePals
recently hosted a worldwide K-12 competition for students to submit videos, songs, speeches and presentations on climate change, which would then be hand delivered to world leaders in Copenhagen. The goal of the competition was to educate students on climate change, and provide them with a way to take action.
Entries poured in from all over the world and each entry was evaluated for thoughtful selection of issues; overall effectiveness of delivery; quality of content; creativity; technical quality; and adherence to the format guidelines of the contest.
This week, the contest organizers announced 30 winners out of more than 500 entries. Winning entries of the Students Speak!
contest were compiled onto a DVD which will be presented to world leaders this week in Copenhagen. Check out the ePals
website to see all 30 winning entries.
Will it make a difference? It will to the students who used this competition as an opportunity to speak out on an issue that will surely affect their generation. Let's just hope the world leaders are listening.
