European Commission: Commission announces winners of school video competition on energy efficiency


The winning entries in an EU-wide school video competition “Film4Energy challenge” on saving energy have been announced today. The overall winner is the team ‘Act Green’ from the 5th Gymnasium in Kalamata (Greece), with runner-up prizes awarded to schools in Bucharest (Romania), Valencia (Spain), and Kaunas and Daugai (Lithuania). The jury also awarded a special prize to the video produced by the Aldo Moro School in Cerro di Lambro (Italy) to acknowledge its exceptional production quality.

Aimed at 12-15 years old, the “Film4Energy challenge” tasked small teams to produce videos which highlight the importance of energy efficiency and ways in which their school makes more efforts to save energy. In all, the competition saw 90 entries from schools across 16 EU. The jury made a point of congratulating all teams on their projects, describing the result as a heterogeneous mix of videos with creative and inspiring messages.

The jury described the winning video from the Kalamata 5th Gymnasium as perfectly covering the theme of the competition, namely energy efficiency, while demonstrating creativity. In addition, the video is dynamic and cheerful, which helps to convey the important messages. As a prize the 5th Gymnasium in Kalamata will host an ‘energy day’ within their school premises, funded by the Commission, promoting direct interaction with and between interested students.
