Enviro-Solutions, a manufacturer of Green cleaning chemicals and products, announces that Claudia, Joe, and Zack at Great Neck North Middle School in Great Neck, New York, are the winners of the “Going Enviral” Greener Schools Video Challenge 2012 for their winning video, "Period 4 Lights Out.”
The contest, which was open to school-age children throughout North America, was conducted on the Enviro-Solutions Facebook page starting in March 2012 and ending July 15, 2012.
Claudia, Joe, and Zack will divide the $500 prize money, and their school will receive $500 in free Green cleaning chemicals from Enviro-Solutions.
According to Jennifer Meek, manager of customer service and marketing for Enviro-Solutions, 22 youngsters entered the contest by submitting videos.
Altogether, 307 Facebook fans voted on the winning videos. An in-house group of judges at Enviro-Solutions also voted on the videos and made the final selection.
“The contest was a great learning experience,” says Meek. “It was challenging at times, but in the end, I believe it was worth it when you look at the work that these kids put into the videos.”
Meek notes that the number of visitors to the company’s Facebook site increased significantly while the contest was being conducted. Additionally, the number of “fans” of the site doubled.
“We were so impressed with some of the videos,” adds Meek. “It was obvious that many of these students are very Green-focused, which is really impressive.”
