Love Where You Live Photo and Video Contest
Respect for the planet begins with respect for your neighbourhood. Love Where You Live is a new initiative by the Mission Adopt-A-Block Society which started out as a Photo Contest in October 2013. The goal of this program is to promote civic pride and environmental responsibility among Mission youth ages 12-18.
The youth are encouraged to participate in this contest by taking on an area that needs a little TLC. Participants may choose to clean up around a local park, remove debris from a stream, paint over graffiti or come up with their own ideas. Whatever the project is, it needs to be documented through before and after photos or 3-5min video.
Mission Adopt-a-Block will award cash prizes:
1st place – $500 | 2nd place – $250 | 3rd place – $100.
The contest is running from January to March 2015. Final submissions must be received at Mission Adopt-a-Block office no later than noon March 31st 2015.
