Waste Ops

JOIN THE WASTE OPS
MISSION

People throw away tons of garbage each and every day. Maitland & Cessnock Councils are asking year 7 & 8 students from across the Hunter Region to help them shift the way we think about waste and encourage people to reduce their waste.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

We need your class to provide a script and storyboard for a short film of no more than 60 seconds. The film needs to persuade people living in Cessnock and Maitland regions to reduce the amount of waste they throw away each day. Think about a film with the potential to go viral! Something that will be noticed, remembered and ultimately a message that will persuade people to change their behaviour. The best four storyboards will be professionally filmed and hosted on the Waste Ops website. The community will then be asked to vote for their favourite video.
