ARTBA’s Research and Education Division (RED) Student Video Contest rewards original, two- to four-minute video exploring the challenges facing America’s transportation infrastructure.

Now in its fifth year, the competition raises awareness about the conditions of the nation’s roads, bridges, public transit and rail systems, airports, ports and waterways.  Past videos have addressed how transportation infrastructure is built and paid for, impacts of traffic congestion, new transportation technologies and how to improve the network for future U.S. economic growth and mobility.

Students may enter the contest individually or as a team in either of two categories; elementary through high school, or college/graduate school. Elementary, middle and high school teachers are permitted to help their classes with video production. Two winning entrants will each receive a $500 cash prize and have their videos screened during ARTBA’s national convention, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, in Philadelphia.

Deadline for submissions is Aug. 31. Contact ARTBA’s Kashae Williams for more information, or visit http://www.artba.org/video-contest/
