The 2019 Green Apple Video Competition is now open! To participate, students must create a PSA video on the subject of “Zero Waste”. Submissions can be up to two-minute in length. All Middle School, High School and College Students of the San Joaquin Valley are eligible to enter the video competition. Entries will be judged by a panel of green building experts. Winners receive a membership to CMAC.

Winning videos and runner ups will be shown during a reception at the Art Museum on Earth Day, April 20, 2019. The videos will also be highlighted on the CMAC channel and the websites of USGBC Central California and used for education purposes. Deadline for entries is April 9 by 6pm.

Overall Rating
  • I was notified by a automated email that my students video project was selected to receive an award. I didn't get any details or information until a full 7 days later they finally responded to my email saying they were working on getting the award and prizes to my students. Two months later my students are done with school and they never received their prizes or reward for winning this video film competition. Not a very good experience to say the least.
