2016 UW Climate Change Video Awards
Town Hall

The School of Environmental and Forest Sciences is very pleased to present the 2016 UW Climate Change Video Awards!

For the second year in a row, we challenged high school and undergraduate students in the state of Washington to grab a camera and show us what climate change means to them in three minutes or less. Join us at Town Hall on Saturday, May 14, for a screening of the finalists' videos, and see who snags the $5,000 grand prize—as well as $1,000 for second and $500 for thirdfor the high school and college participants!

Our emcee for the evening will be Yoram Bauman, an environmental economist, writer and comedian, who is the founder and co-chair of Carbon Washington, a grassroots campaign to bring a revenue-neutral carbon tax—known as I-732—to Washington, and the co-author of The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change.

Yoram will be joined by a renowned panel of judges who will select the winners and discuss the students' work, including
 DJ Spooky, aka Paul D. Miller, a composer, multimedia artist and writer who created The Book of Ice, which explores the impact of climate change on Antarctica through the prism of digital media and contemporary music; Ethan Steinman, a producer, director and the founder of Daltonic Films, who directed the award-winning documentary Glacial Balance, which looks at the dwindling Andean glaciers and the people who depend on them for survival; and Dean Lisa J. Graumlich from the College of the Environment at the University of Washington.

The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
