Entries pouring in for Green Cross Australia Future Sparks contest

Innovative ideas by creative, environmentally-minded children have been flooding in for Green Cross Australia's Future Spark video contest.

Green Cross is urging children to use their imagination to be part of the solution to the energy and related environmental challenges facing the world today.

"Have you come up with a new invention that uses clean energy? Can you tell us why it is so important that we invest in new energy ideas? Is there a new way to harness clean energy? How do you imagine a life with less carbon?" asks Green Cross Australia Chief Executive Officer Mara Bun.

To check out an example of the entrants submitted to date, watch this video from Maribyrnong Primary School in Australia.
