Schuylkill Action Network Launches Student Video, Education Contests. The Schuylkill Action Network has launched two contests for students of all ages, and the theme of both is the Schuylkill River.
For the first time, students can enter the Schuylkill Stories Contest by submitting videos up to three minutes long by March 1. The theme of the inaugural competition is “This is My Watershed.”
The Schuylkill Action Network is seeking videos from students explaining how and why they enjoy the Schuylkill River, as well as the many waterways flowing into it.

For the fifth year, students can also vie for a Drinking Water Scholastic Award with nominations due on March 1.
These are given to select classes and youth groups who carry out educational programs or restoration projects that help to keep the Schuylkill River clean.
Previous winners have planted trees along streams, created a campus rain garden, given presentations in their community and more.
