Care about the Earth? The ‘Limerick Earth Day Video Contest’ was launched at City Hall last week. The aim of the contest is to ‘Celebrate Limerick for Earth Day 2012′. The contest is open to individuals, groups and schools. There is an overall prize of €200 for the best video and €100 for the runner up.
The Environment Department of Limerick City Council is sponsoring the competition. Ms Trish Forde Brenan of Limerick Earth Day Group explains – ‘It is about encouraging people to live, work and enjoy themselves in a more sustainable and environmentally friendly community. It’s about acting to secure a healthy future for ourselves and future generations on a local, national and global level. In a positive way we want people to “Get Active” and help Limerick to help itself become a greener economy’.
Earth Day is Sunday 22nd of April 2012. The winning videos will be used to launch Earth Day 2012 and will be aired on Limerick.ie, LimerickCity.ie, Live95fm.ie, limerickleader.ie and ILoveLimerick.com.
The closing date for entries is Thursday, 5th April 2012, 5.00 pm.
