Her video “It’s not easy being green. We’ve done things wrong, now it’s time to make things right.” was chosen as the video that best  illustrates the wastefulness/dangers of the current practice of utilizing landfill sites for garbage disposal and the benefits of the alternatives thereto.

Also at the presentation were Matthieu Gauthier the star of the video and councillor Shad Qadri.

Marielle’s mother said “The  contest idea was a terrific way for youth to become interested in the issues affecting Stittsville and the communities surrounding the dump”.
