The Municipality of Montevideo has announced the opening of two contests, namely “Focus Your Environment” and “A Photo Towards the Future,” specifically designed for secondary school students.
As part of the environmental strategy “Montevideo Más Verde” undertaken by the capital commune, the Municipality of Montevideo, in collaboration with ANEP, aims to foster citizen engagement and reflection on actions and practices that impact the environment. To achieve this, they invite secondary school students to participate in two environmental contests: “Focus Your Environment” and “A Photo Towards the Future.”
Both contests offer participation opportunities for students in the basic cycle or integrated basic education categories.
FOCUS YOUR ENVIRONMENT:
This contest encourages students to create audiovisual productions that incorporate concepts, ideas, or proposals related to recyclable materials such as paper, plastic, cardboard, and cans, among others.
The winning production will be awarded $25,000, which can be used to cover expenses for a trip that may include transportation, tickets, meals, and snacks, among other items.
The second-place winner will receive $12,500, which can be used for an end-of-year field trip or to purchase an electronic or computer item of equal value.
A PHOTO TOWARDS THE FUTURE:
In this photographic production contest, students are expected to address aspects related to the preservation and care of the city’s environmental heritage and its public spaces.
The author of the winning photograph in each category will receive a prize consisting of photographic devices or electronic items worth $25,000. The second-place winner will receive $15,000, while the third-place winner will receive $10,000.
Students interested in submitting proposals for both contests can do so until Monday, October 2, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. They can submit their entries either in person at the Socio-Environmental Unit office of the Municipality of Montevideo or through email or WeTransfer to the address email@example.com.
For any questions or clarifications, students can contact the Socio-Environmental Unit of the Department of Environmental Development at 1950 4929/4925 or via the provided email address.
