video contest:


"How Does Chemistry Help YOU Be Green?" - A Video Contest From ES&T


2010 is a milestone year for environmental awareness, marking the 40th
anniversary of the celebration and recognition of Earth Day, the
founding of the Environmental Protection Agency and the National
Environmental Policy Act that have all helped to shape the way we think
and the way we live our lives with respect to the environment.  In
recognition of these significant milestones and the part we can all
play, Environmental Science & Technology would like to give you the
chance to show the world how chemistry helps you be green.  


Please share with us what you are doing in your own community, school,
workplace, etc. to be more green and how chemistry can help sustain both
your efforts and the world you live in. Submit a video on your own, or
join up with a research partner, a classmate, a professor, you can even
submit a video as a whole class or lab-but please be creative, have fun,
and help us show the world how chemistry helps you, or can help us all
to be green!


                                Submit your videos and you could win up
