Representatives of Molodist team and PC "Ukrplastic" introduced ‘Shoot & Play’ contest to students of Kyiv Small Academy of Sciences. A winner of the contest will receive a cash prize amounting to $1,000.

Bogdan Zhuk ,‘Shoot&Play’ Program Coordinator, Dmytro Abramov, Molodist Administrative Director, and Elena Zagorodniuk, "Molodist for Kids" Program Manager, told future scientists about the opportunities of Molodist Film Festival for young hopefuls.

According to Bohdan Zhuk, the participants showed great interest to the presentation and expressed their ideas about the project progress. The presentation of this new contest was held in the form of a game including Q&A session, which gave an opportunity to discuss the project in the best possible way. Children were shown the examples of how to shoot a really interesting and multi-format film with duration of up to one minute.

UKRPLASTIC, which is an active participant in the UN international environmental initiative Save Food, has suggested a worthy theme for creative videos to MAN students. Children learn about the dangers of environmental threats that come from food waste, packaging plays a role in reducing the threat and is also a way in which the world is trying to solve the problem. Young scientists immediately began to discuss their own ideas for the preservation of food and natural resources.

According to the president of UKRPLASTIC Irina Mirochnik, the youth is a driver in the formation of a “green” lifestyle, because young people are the most active and creative part of society. “Young people are deprived of clichés and stereotypes, and are ready to offer custom solutions. We offer young talents to join the international environmental initiative, already supported by 65 countries. The most interesting video made on the theme of Save Food will receive prizes, and will be posted on the information resources of the United Nations”, - said Irina Mirochnik.

When the presentation was over, the students said with one voice that the presentation of Molodist  and Ukrplastic projects was one of the most interesting activities they had for the last 10 days.
