America Recycles Day is celebrated nationwide each November 15th, and celebrates the benefits of recycling through an array of awareness-raising events nationwide. To increase the buzz this year, national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful (KAB) is conducting a video contest, which runs through October 21, 2011.

The video needs to be uploaded to the ARD YouTube page (youtube.com/AmericaRecyclesDay) by Oct. 21, 2011, as a response to a short video that explains the competition. The ARD Video Committee will vote on the top 10 winners and upload them to a YouTube playlist on our ARD page by Nov. 8, 2011. During the following week, the public will pick the winning videos by clicking the “like” button associated with their favorite video. Voting ends on America Recycles Day. See full details below.
The grand prize is $1,000 in cash, and members of the winning group (up to five) will also receive a prize pack. The second-place winner will receive $500 in cash. The Committee also may award additional prizes. More information can be found on AmericaRecyclesDay.org or by emailing email@example.com.
