The Education Program at Population Connection is sponsoring a video contest for high school students, called the World of 7 Billion." The goal of this competition is to encourage students to explore how the growing human population will affect their world in the 21st century.

Here is the basic information about the contest.

World of 7 Billion Video Contest
Bring technology and creativity into your high school geography classes by incorporating the World of 7 Billion video PSA contest into your syllabi. Challenge your students to create a 30- to 45-second video PSA illustrating the connection between world population at seven billion and one of the following: food security, wildlife habitat, or the global status of women/girls. Students can win up to $1,000, and their teachers will receive free curriculum resources. The contest deadline is February 21, 2013. Full contest guidelines, resources for research, past winners, and more can be found at www.Worldof7Billion.org.  You can email Carol Bliese at cbliese@populationconnection.org for more information.
