Shortest Ever Disaster Movie back for another year

Shortest Ever Disaster Movie back for another year


Hawke’s Bay school students are being urged to get their creative minds into gear and take part in this year’s Shortest Ever Disaster Movie competition.

The competition, run by the Hawke’s Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management Group, invites schools to create a short film, focussing on being prepared for a civil defence emergency.

Hawke’s Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Manager Ian Macdonald says this year’s theme is “What would you do?”.

“We are encouraging students to consider different emergency situations and how they would react, with the aim of educating people about how to prepare for a civil defence emergency,” says Mr Macdonald.

“The competition is a fun way for schools to also strengthen their own civil defence preparedness and awareness among staff and students.”

Schools interested in taking part need to register at www.hbemergency.govt.nz, where they will also find out more details about the competition and be able to view previous winners. This year prizes will be awarded in three categories: primary, intermediate and secondary.

Schools need to register by Wednesday June 4 and all entries need to be in by Wednesday 3 September, with prize giving on Wednesday 17 September. The winning entries will be available to view during Get Ready Week - 21 – 27 September 2014.
