The 4th annual Scotties TREES ROCK! Video contest is back! Kids in grades 3-5th or 6-8th may now create a 3 minute (or less) video about the importance of trees and win $10,000 for their school! The entry period for the Scotties Trees Rock contest ends November 14th.
The video can be many things…

· A skit

· A song

· A dance

· A speech

· A jingle

· A poem

· An interpretive dance

The more creative the better! Just make sure to answer one question “Why do tree rock?” Trees Rock encourages individuals or groups of kids in grades 3, 4, and 5 or 6, 7, and 8 to submit a video about the importance of trees. In each group, the grand prize winner (determined by a national vote) will win $10,000 for their school to use towards a sustainable project. The remaining 10 finalists in both groups will not leave empty-handed either and can walk away with prizes ranging up to $7,000.

We are big fans of Scotties here in the Frugality Is Free family, because with Scotties we can use facial tissue without feeling guilty. We love the Scotties re-planting promise, and just like Scotties, we also try to plant lots of trees. Right now we are experimenting with growing palm trees, magnolia trees and royal poinciana trees from seeds, and in our little city garden we have planted  lots of trees such as orange, lemon, avocado and mango trees that we have grown from seeds as well.

Despite living in the city, our house is surrounded by large trees, and the trees help us keep our house cool and save us more than $1000 on our electricity bill every year.We definitely agree with Scotties, Trees Rock!
