National sponsors contest to help schoolsMarch 14, 2014
From local sources
JASPER — National Office Furniture, a brand unit of Kimball International Inc., is giving $4,000 to sponsor a Green4Green video contest to support sustainability initiatives at schools and universities.
The contest intertwines two of the company’s passions: the environment and education.
“All you need to do is create a video describing how $4,000 could enhance your school’s environmental efforts,” says Kourtney Smith, vice president of marketing at National. “We’ll award two schools or universities some green to help them be green.”
The video’s primary message should convey how the cash prize will aid in an educational institution’s environmentally friendly project. The video should be no more than three minutes and should be submitted on National’s Facebook page or www.NationalOfficeFurniture.com/Education by midnight Thursday, May 15.
Submissions should include the name of a faculty or staff member from the school or university who supports the project. If contestants are younger than 18, videos should be submitted by the designated faculty or staff member or other adult.
After May 15, finalists will be selected based on creativity and environmental impact. Online voting to determine the two winners will run from June 2 through July 31 on National’s Facebook page.
