Weedbusters Two-Minute Film Challenge 2013

Your students could win $1000 for your school with the Weedbusters Two-Minute Film Challenge for Year 1-8 students. Get creative, learn heaps, and help save the environment! What’s the challenge about? Students create a short clip (up to two minutes long) that tells a story about ornamental garden plants that have ‘jumped the fence’ and are now causing environmental damage in natural areas of New Zealand.

It could be a video clip or a narrated powerpoint. It could use still photography, or stop motion animation or cartoons. It could be a play, a documentary or even a song or rap. The possibilities are endless. You might even be able to get Woody Weed, the Weedbusters mascot, to play a part in your final clip!

Your ‘mini-masterpieces’ need to be in by 1 October 2013. For more information, go to
