The entry deadline has passed for the 2016-2017 Student Video Competition. Thank you to all of the colleges and universities that entered this year's competition. Winners will be announced by April 2017.


What can individuals do to help reduce climate change?

The video is intended to motivate individuals to change daily habits that cause carbon emissions that may contribute to climate change.

To help people understand the roles of Environmental Engineers and Scientists, the video should end with brief references as to how Environmental Engineers and Scientists are working on climate issues.

Intended Audience

The video should be targeted to motivate 8th grade and higher students to change daily habits that contribute to climate change. The video may also be used more broadly to motivate the general public to change simple patterns that contribute to climate change.


The competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students studying environmental engineering or sciences worldwide. At least one team member or Faculty Advisor must be a member of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES) or the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP). All team members must be enrolled in a college or university at the deadline for video submission.
