Environmentally conscious students are in with a chance of winning festival tickets.

Students at the Brighton universities are asked to take part in the Student Recycling Champions competition.

The contest has been launched by recycling programme Every Can Counts and festival organisers Festival Republic to encourage people to recycle more at music events.

Winners will snap up tickets for Reading or Leeds Festival this summer.

Students must submit a 500 word entry or two minute video demonstrating an idea for improving recycling at festivals and six winners will be chosen.

Entries by email to studentchampions@citypress.co.uk by midnight on June 8.
