When you were young, did you want to be a part of something special? A part of a movement that changed the world you lived in? Be the Street, a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping the Bay Area clean and safe is developing just that: an opportunity for the youth to have their voices heard and make an impact by participating in an anti-litter campaign.

Be the Street has partnered with 14 schools, 2 summer media camps and Bay Area youth to change the way Northern California looks by launching a region wide anti-litter campaign.

Currently, we are hosting a Video Contest and are challenging teenagers and young adults to create a 15-30 second video that focuses on an anti-litter message that will motivate their peers and community to keep the Bay Area clean!

What’s In It For Them? Anyone who submits a video before August 15th will be entered in a raffle to win a $350 Apple Gift card. An awards ceremony will be held in mid-November to announce the video contest winners and award them prizes. The lucky grand prize winner will receive $1,000 in addition to having their video aired on television!
