Students invited to enter educational video contest
Digital media and audio visual students in Maui County are invited to enter an educational video contest sponsored by the state, Department of Transportation, Highways Division — Maui District.
The project is designed to promote public awareness of why stormwater matters to the islands’ environment and encourage good community practices to help keep our stormwater clean.
HWY-M encourages all AV and digital media programs at Maui County schools — elementary through high school — to produce and submit original and educational videos on such stormwater topics as what a storm drain system is, how pollutants can get into stormwater and impact the ocean and wildlife, and how to prevent stormwater pollution.
“Schools and teachers and families are working through incredibly unusual times, and though the students might be in virtual schooling, we hope this contest will be a fun and creative opportunity for them to advance their skills in digital media technologies while learning more about our island environment,” said Ty Fukuroku, program manager, HWY-M Environmental Management.
