We need your video-making talents!!! With a generous grant from The Russell Family Foundation, the University of Washington Tacoma will host the first ever film festival focused on our own Puyallup River Watershed. We invite all individuals, schools (middle schools, high schools, and colleges/universities) and non-profit organizations located in or working in the watershed to submit 2- to 3-minute videos related to issues affecting the Puyallup River and its tributaries. Any digital format will be accepted, and the more inventive and original the better!!! All of the information about the competition is available on the poster.
If you have any questions, please contact Jim Gawel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"What is a watershed?"
An educational video created by students from Lincoln High School's Lincoln Center, this is the first video in a series to be created by area schools explaining water management issues in the Puyallup River Watershed. These videos will be a key part of a new website being developed by Dr. Jim Gawel, Dr. Megan Kogut, staff member Paul Lovelady and student Brenda Smithhisler at UW Tacoma for area students and educators to explore the science and policy of watershed management using the Puyallup River as a model. This web project, funded by The Russell Family Foundation, builds on the documentary "Water Undone: the Effort to Save the Puyallup River Watershed" released in 2010.
"What is a watershed?" may also be viewed through Vimeo.
