Planet Forward is excited to partner with Second Nature for the second straight year in featuring the Climate Leadership Awards. The competition will elevate the great climate leadership work taking place at colleges and universities.
As part of this year's Climate Leadership Awards, finalists are being asked to create a 1-3 minute video highlighting the innovation documented in their nomination forms. Videos are due March 15th, but you'll need to start planning today! This video will be submitted to the Planet Forward web competition in March, and featured in a public voting contest during the month of April. Institutions (along with other innovators) who receive the most votes will have the chance to be featured on Bloomberg Television and Huffington Post. In addition, all institutions who create videos are eligible to appear in our webisodes, weekly newsletters, and other public outreach opportunities.
How to Submit
Suggested video length: 1 – 3 minutes.
Once completed, simply upload to YouTube or Vimeo and submit your video. Choose the category that best describes your idea (Engineering, Transportation, Science, Policy, Business, or Nature) and fill out the form. Simply post the link to your video, describe your idea, and remember to check the “Climate Leadership Awards” box at the bottom of the page to be entered into the competition.
In addition, remember to add in other relevant tags like “Campus Sustainability,” "Colleges and Universities," and others so that a wider audience can hear about your ideas.
Be creative! Videos can be anything from web cam commentary to music videos. Use students to tell the story! For more information on how to make a good video, check out our informational page here.
Videos due by March 15, 2013

Framing Your Video
Use this question to guide the creation of your video: What innovation is your campus providing to help communities build for the future and adapt to a changing planet? Use components of your nomination form to Second Nature, and be sure to highlight the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment by using the full title of the commitment, and logo, during the video.
