GreenShorts Award Ceremony

An environmental film competition for Southern California high school students.

Join us at UCLA James Bridges Theater on May 9 for the GreenShorts Award Ceremony, where we'll celebrate winning short environmental films created by SoCal high school students. 

With GreenShorts, high school students get a chance to sit in the director’s chair and win cash prizes. The contest invites two-minute-or-less films to showcase ideas, commentary and vision for cities and the world.

This year, students submitted one short film in five categories: Climate Heroes, Watertopia, No Justice No Green, You Are What You Eat, and Wild CA. To learn more about GreenShorts, visit
