2015/2016 Scotties Facial Tissues 5th Annual TREES ROCK video contest...

It’s that time of year again – the start of the 2015/2016 Scotties Facial Tissues 5th Annual TREES ROCK video contest!

The campaign, open to students in grades 3-6 provides them with environmental curriculum and tips about the many amazing things trees do in our community. To enter, students are encouraged to shoot a 1-3 minute video to tell Scotties why trees are so important. The grand prize winner (determined by a national vote) will receive $10,000 to use on a sustainable project at their school.

All videos are to be submitted by November 13th, 2015 at The top 10 finalists will be announced in December 2015, and from there the videos will go to a national vote to determine the winner by early 2016. Prize money will be awarded at a celebratory event in April / May of 2016.

Scotties created the Trees Rock program out of a passion for the environment and a desire to share the message of sustainability to students. Despite the decline in environmental education at schools, studies have proven that learning about nature enhances “critical thinking and basic life skills” along with establishing “increased engagement and enthusiasm for learning and reduced discipline and classroom management problems”.

An increase in environmental education not only helps students in science, but in other subjects such as reading and math. Scotties has conducted outdoor classes and tree plantings throughout the country and seen firsthand the passion and excitement from young people when they learn about the world around them.

Thank you Scotties for all you do, this great Trees Rock Contest, and for the amazing products!
