Summary

Back in January, in partnership with Inside the Outdoors Foundation, Newport Beach Film Festival, Newport Bay Naturalist & Friends and OC Parks, we helped launch a contest for all OrangeCountyHigh School students. The task was simple; create a 30 or 60 second public service announcement (PSA) focused on any environmental topic of their choice. We challenged them to make an ECOMMERCIAL that would tell send a message about what was most important to them when it comes to sustainability and environmental awareness.

(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) June 10, 2010 - Back in January, in partnership with Inside the Outdoors Foundation, Newport Beach Film Festival, Newport Bay Naturalist & Friends and OC Parks, we helped launch a contest for all OrangeCountyHigh School students. The task was simple; create a 30 or 60 second public service announcement (PSA) focused on any environmental topic of their choice. We challenged them to make an ECOMMERCIAL that would tell send a message about what was most important to them when it comes to sustainability and environmental awareness.

After the April 9th deadline, there were more than 100 entries to review and choosing a winner was a difficult task indeed! There were 3 different judging bodies and with five winning spots up for grabs and a grip-load of prizes the competition really heated up in the last week.
 
Sunday, April 25th, we were happy to come together at the Earth Day Celebration 2010 presented by Newport Bay Naturalist & Friends at the OC Parks’ Peter and MaryMuthInterpretiveCenter to celebrate the winners and their achievements. Winners walked away with cash prizes, Stormy Monday skateboards, Volcom product, Electric product, and prizes from all the other sponsors (big thanks to all of them!).
 
In the end, it came down to four winning ECOMMERCIALS:
