“Built to Last” VIDEO CONTEST!!

Lockheed Martin Proudly Presents……

 “Built to Last”

Making the Mojave Desert Sustainable By Design

A Video Contest for Grades 3-12

Prizes up to $200!

Through this contest, Lockheed Martin is promoting its efforts to make the Skunk Works  “Sustainable by Design.”    So what does “Sustainable by Design” mean? It means  developing and making  products using renewable and environmentally-friendly (“green”) materials and practices which allow consumers to reduce their overall environmental impact.  For example, Lockheed Martin is developing hybrid aircraft that will reduce the environmental impacts over using ground transportation, and compact fusion which will supply the world with unlimited clean energy!  Sustainability means recycling, conserving energy and using natural resources efficiently in order to be able to support the people of the planet forever.

In a one to three minute video, show off your news reporting skills around your home, school and community by interviewing at least one person about “Making the Mojave Desert Sustainable by Design.” 

You can interview fellow students, teachers, business leaders or community members and ask them the following questions:

  1. What does sustainability mean to you?
  2. How do you affect (practice) sustainably in your job (or at school)?
  3. How do you affect (practice)  sustainability at home?
  4. What else can we do to make the Mojave Desert more “sustainable by design?”

How will you decided who to interview for your video?  Think about a business or school club or home owner that is doing something special to protect or preserve the environment.  For example, you could interview a business that has installed solar panels, a teacher  or student who has started a recycling club, or a group or agency that is promoting water conservation.  It’s up to you!

 There are THREE Prize categories:

Grades 3-5     Grades 6-8

     Grades 9-12        

First, second, and third place winners will be selected in each category.  All awards are gift cards.
