WSC Produces 'Chill Out' Video; Showcases campus efforts to reduce global warming
Feb. 11, 2010 -- The National Wildlife Federation is hosting a “Chill Out” contest, where colleges and universities from across the country are challenged to create a two minute video that showcases what their campuses are doing to cut carbon emissions and reduce global warming.
“Chill Out: Campus Solutions to Global Warming” is America’s leading competition and awards program for recognizing college and university innovation to solve global warming. There were several categories up for entry and Western State College opted to share its successes due to the important work of students.
A team of students, faculty and staff created their contest entry over the course of three weeks. The video focuses on the recent effort towards creating a “closed-loop” composting system that will be used to grow food in the campus community garden.
Voting will remain open until March 1. The winner will be awarded grant money to continue their efforts to cut carbon emissions.
