The team has launched a Facebook page – NRCG South Central Zone – as well as a video contest through the new page. The Facebook page will be used to announce current and future wildfire prevention messages and campaigns and the contest is part of the recent push to stem human-caused wildfires.
The rules for the contest are simple
· “Like” – Find our page on Facebook by searching NRCG South Central Zone, click “like.”
· Shoot it – Video submissions should have a wildfire prevention theme to them. Now is a critical time of year for human caused wildfires in the forests and we’re aiming to minimize that potential.
· Post it – Upload your video to YouTube and share the link on our wall.
· Share it – The video with the most “likes” on our wall by Sept. 24 – the end of the contest.
· No live fire – There should be no flames in your video submission. This will be grounds for automatic disqualification from the contest.
· Keep it clean – No vulgarity, keep it PG rated. We reserve the right to remove and disqualify any video deemed inappropriate.
· Keep it short – Videos should be 90 seconds or less. No exceptions.
· Safety – Your safety is more important than any video contest. Videos portraying dangerous acts will be removed and disqualified.
There are no limitations as to who is allowed to post videos or how many videos you may post. Be creative. Get your friends to help. It’s open to everyone – individuals, groups, teams. Have fun with it and help us prevent the next wildfire.
