Celebrate Earth Day 2018 with MGE

Enter our Earth Day Video Contest for grades 4–8.


Students could win a party (valued at up to $500) for their classroom at one of the following locations:

  • Madison Children's Museum
  • Aldo Leopold Nature Center
  • Your school

Students submit a video they create about "How I make a difference on Earth Day and Every Day." Include an activity they participate in on Earth Day that positively impacts the local environment and community.

Also this year…we're takin' it to the playground!

Create your video around a sidewalk chalk creation! Have your students illustrate a source of renewable energy, or conservation idea. Film them creating it or drawing it together or just the final work of art that communicates our commitment to the earth and the energy for its future.

Get a free set of chalk to get started!

Request sidewalk chalk here!

You can find rules for the contest here.
Deadline for video submission is May 1, 2018.
