A winner has been selected in SMU’s 2011 Green Minute Video Competition, and his name is Barnard…Lance Barnard.
The first-year student from Sherman Oaks, California, took home the grand prize of an iPad2 for his “Mission: Possible”- themed Green Minute.
Barnard, who plans to major in finance and psychology, participated in his environmental club in high school and said he entered the video contest because he was looking for ways to get involved in similar activities at SMU.
The second-place winner was Ryan Tanner, a first-year student from Arizona, who received a 22-inch flat-screen TV. Third place went to Anh-Thuy Nguyen of Vietnam, a Master’s degree candidate in Meadows School of the Arts; she received a $50 Starbucks gift card.
Sponsored by the SMU Sustainability Committee, the Green Minute Video Competition is designed to foster concern for the environment in the campus community. Now in its third year, the contest challenges students to produce a one-minute video that encourages environmentally responsible behavior on the Hilltop.
“This contest is as fun for us as it is for the students,” said Eric English, co-chair of the SMU Sustainability Committee. “The videos do a terrific job of spreading the sustainability message on and off campus, and we feature them at various events throughout the year.”
