2013 Student Educational Video Award (SEVA) Winner for Grades 7-8 Long Documentary

This documentary film was created for The World We Want Foundation (http://theworldwewantfoundation.org/) as a way to blend Project Citizen (http://new.civiced.org/programs/proje...) with filmmaking.

Students in Jim Bentley's 6th grade class at Foulks Ranch Elementary School in the Elk Grove Unified School District researched the policies regarding the disposal of batteries and the placement of battery collection containers throughout the City of Elk Grove.

What they advocated for was a battery collection container to be placed at their school. What they achieved was something they never expected: being asked by the City of Elk Grove's Integrated Waste Division to create an instructional film, educating 150,000 residents of their city how to identify, package, and safely transport household hazardous wastes to our city's Special Waste Collection Center which will be constructed starting July 2012.
