TASMANIAN CLIMATE CHANGE STORIES
Sharing stories about changing climate from Tasmania, Australia and the world.
This site aims to give Tasmanian students a voice and produce a living library of how climate change is affecting them, their local communities and their future health, safety, jobs and more.
By collecting stories about climate change, students can assess for themselves the impacts and consider changes that we might all need to make.
Sharing stories and experiences is the way people communicate and learn, pass on knowledge and form judgements. Hearing stories first-hand is more powerful and meaningful than relaying someone else's experience. This innovative interactive citizen science project aims to collect stories from Tasmanians about the impacts of climate change.
Winners will be announced Tuesday 21st November at Kids for Kids conference in Hobart.
Work together as a class to make a presentation/documentary on climate change 4-10 minutes that answers these questions:
1. What is the problem/issue with climate change?
2. Why aren’t people doing as much as they could to solve the problem?
What can you do to help?
ENTER THE MYSTATE FILM FESTIVAL
The MyState Film Festival is a separate competition which you can also enter. You can enter the same video documentary under the Mystate competition documentary section. Videos that enter Mystate cannot not be judged or displayed on our site until November after the Mystate competition is finished. It is vital that you note on your entry form if you are also entering the mystate competition so that we do not make your video live until after mystate competition has been judged.

FACTORS OF JUDGING
There are many ways to judge a video. Our aim is for everyone to have an opportunity to get involved, learn, have fun and have a chance to succeed. We will be considering such criteria as technique (older ages), interest, age appropriate, effort and context. We may also take into consideration how many likes, shares and comments are received.
All participants will receive a certificate of participation and the winners will also get a special t-shirt.
Consolation prizes of keep mugs will be given at judges discretion.
