The San Diego Air & Space Museum and Ford Motor Company Fund are encouraging students to better the environment by offering five $500 scholarships as part of the 2009 Green Ideas for Life video contest. Filmmakers ages 6-18 must submit a short video illustrating changes and actions they and others could make to green their world. Submissions are due by November 8. Winners will be invited to the museum’s International Hall of Fame Gala on November 21 to receive their scholarships in the presence of Sally Ride, PhD, the first American woman in space, and the Blue Angels.
