Twice the fright! Reuse Halloween costumes for annual Video Contest
Know any 6-12th graders who are dressing up for Halloween? Encourage them to resurrect their Halloween costumes for a second use: the annual Take Care of Texas Video Contest! Students are encouraged to film a 30-second public service announcement demonstrating positive ways to Take Care of Texas. Middle school students have a shot at new camera gear, and high school students can win scholarships.
In previous contests, students’ videos have starred vaqueros, superheroes, athletes and more to creatively emphasize the importance of conserving water and keeping it clean, keeping the air clean, and reducing waste. See some of the clever characters of video contests past below.
Remember, though, you may want to steer clear of trademarked costumes to avoid disqualification. You can find more on that in the official contest rules.
All video submissions are due Dec. 4, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. Happy Halloween and happy filming!
