Students encouraged to create video spots for NBC’s Green Week contest
NBC Sports, as part of NBC Universal’s Green Week (Nov. 16-23), is inviting Syracuse University students to submit a 30-second spot on an important “green” message for a contest that could result in the spot being aired nationally during the Syracuse vs. Notre Dame football game Nov. 22.
The competition is open to full-time undergraduate and graduate students at SU and the University of Notre Dame. Five student video submissions will be provided by SU to NBC executives to be entered in the contest. Notre Dame will also provide five videos. The winning video, as determined by NBC Universal, will be broadcast on the NBC website and perhaps on national TV during the game. Additionally, the five finalist videos from SU will be available for viewing on SU’s Green Universe City site (http://greenuniversecity.syr.edu).
Video submissions should highlight “how students green their routine” on campus, in the community, in a sorority or fraternity, etc. Videos are due to SU by Nov. 14 at 3 p.m. They should be sent by e-mail to Sustain@syr.edu. To be considered, no spot can exceed 30 seconds in length. For full instructions on how to format and submit a video, visit the Green Universe City site or call Melissa Cadwell in SU’s Sustainability Division at 443-9669.
