Last month, the Office of Sustainability Initiatives (OSI) invited Emory students, faculty and staff to submit a two-minute video that creatively and effectively educated about the importance of landfill waste diversion, including the social and environmental impacts of landfills.
The video competition is part of Emory’s new zero landfill waste campaign, which aims to divert 95 percent of campus waste from municipal landfills by 2025, effectively a zero-waste policy. (See a video about the policy featuring Emory leaders).
After reviewing the submissions for the new video contest, the following winners were chosen:
- First place: Meggie Stewart 18C, majoring in environmental sciences, “A Video about Landfills”
- Second place: Halsey Quinn 18C, majoring in film and media studies, “Emory Recycles”
- Third Place: Dawn Francis Chewning, educational analyst at LITS Student Digital Life, “Emory’s Sustainable Waste Streams”
The OSI encourages the Emory community to share these videos to move us all closer to a zero-landfill waste Emory.
Judges for the video competition were Steve Nowland, assistant director of photography and video production at Emory Photo/Video; Corey Broman-Fulks, associate director of video at Emory Photo/Video; and Steve Bransford, senior video producer at the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship.
