Video competition promotes Washington coast


September 20, 2018

The 2017 Surfrider Leadership Academy (SLA) Alumni, a network of empowered leaders and passionate stakeholders that care deeply about the Washington coast, are launching a competition to engage high school students in conservation and efforts to build resilient coastal communities. My Coast, My Community, or (MC)2 is a video competition open to 9-12 grade students this fall in Clallam, Jefferson, Grays Harbor, Pacific and Wahkiakum counties.

SLA is asking students to identify a community hero and tell their story through a maximum two-minute video.

They have partnered with various marine resource committees in the area to judge the videos based on evalution criteria. One winning video will be chosen in each of the five coastal counties. Up to five people can work on a video. Students can win up to $750 in prizes including gift cards and an outdoor experience in their county.

The video submission deadline is October 1. For more information on the contest guidelines, including a sign-up form, visit or email
