ChloroFilms — plant videos on YouTube

Jeff Karron (AoB’s “pol­len Editor”) recently tipped me off about ChloroFilms, a com­pet­i­tion for new videos illus­trat­ing remark­able aspects of plant life. Entrants cre­ate a rel­ev­ant video, post it on YouTube, and com­plete an entry form on the ChloroFilms web­site. Videos on energy and the envir­on­ment are par­tic­u­larly encour­aged and thous­dand of dol­lars are awar­ded in prizes every year!

But the best part is that all the win­ning entries are avail­able on YouTube, mak­ing a great teach­ing resource, or just good entertainment:
