Video PSA Contest for Middle and High School Students

For the occasion of World Environment Day on 5th of June 2021, UNDP Climate Change Programme and Armenia Tree Project (ATP) announce a nation-wide video PSA competition for middle (grades 5-9) and high school (grades 10-12) students on the topic of Ecosystem Restoration, which is the theme of this year’s observation of the Day. The contest is organized under the EU4Climate regional project, that is funded by EU and implemented by UNDP. The students in relevant grades will need to build their teams (maximum 7 students in a team), create and submit an informational video to raise awareness of general public about an important environmental issue and include a strong message / solution for that issue. The competition is a great opportunity for students to put their writing and video-making skills into practice, explore their artistic prowess and encourage fellow citizens to protect the environment.

  • The video must include a strong message/solution (example: Save paper, save the planet), plus hashtags #EU4Climate and #GenerationRestoration
  • Students are free to use any tools / programs / apps to create the video but it must be no longer than 60 seconds
