A Grade 7 girl from a farm near Delisle, Sask. has won a runner-up prize in a worldwide video contest highlighting human population growth.

Kate Wright's video, titled "Rising Sea Levels," highlights how rapid climate change has caused sea levels to rise. It took a middle-school runner-up prize in the "World of 7 Billion" video contest held by Population Education.  

The contest called on students to explore the issue of climate change, ocean health or rapid urbanization.

Wright's minute-long video employs stop-animation, features a voiceover by Wright and makes creative use of a whiteboard, wrapping paper, toy letters and other artfully-incorporated props.


Wright's teacher at Delisle Composite School used the contest as an assignment in class.

For her efforts, Wright, who lives on a farm near Delisle, also won a $250 cash prize.
