Hillsdale High students Brian Church and Manny Barron won the 2019 Burlingame CEC Film Fest in the High School Category with their documentary, “Composting News Segment.”

The two-minute film highlights what Hillsdale High is doing to better serve the environment by rethinking how they treat waste and educating students on the environmental benefits of composting.

“I think the school has the responsibility to help students become good stewards of the environment and maybe it starts at the school itself,” said Mr. Emanuel, advisor for the Environmental Club at the Hillsdale Community Gardens. “And if that influences the students to go out and clean up the community, that’s great.”

The Burlingame CEC Film Fest is a partnership between the Citizen’s Environmental Council (CEC) and the Burlingame Environmental Club to create the first environmental film festival in the city of Burlingame. The festival includes categories for elementary, middle and high school students ranging from 4th – 12th grade.
