Kea Trophy to Springston

by Kent Caddick

Springston School has taken out the overall prize at the 2017 Selwyn Environmental Video Awards.

Organiser of the event, Lincoln Envirotown (LET), said there were a good number of films entered into Selwyn’s annual environmental video competition.

“We were particularly pleased at the diverse groups and individuals that had put their film-making skills into showing their concerns and actions relating to our fragile environment,” LET project manager Dave Fitzjohn said.

“Along with the traditional school entries, were independent adult entries, independent student entries and a youth club entry. The number of entries to this competition have been steadily growing which we hope is indicative of a growing awareness and concern for our natural world.”

Around 120 producers, actors, editors and all associated with the productions attended the awards night earlier this month at the Lincoln Event Centre to view the movies.

Selwyn Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall was on hand to present category winners their prizes and to handover.

Springston’s winning entry was ‘Save the Eels’, and focussed on waterway protection.
