“There is something in the environment that’s affecting our kids. I don’t know what it is. I don’t know that they [officials] are doing enough until we do know what it is. . . . It’s causing a lot of fear in our community,” says Nurse Jenny Long in “Clyde, Ohio – The Cancer Cluster,” one of several videos honored in a recent event sponsored by Ohioans for Health, Environment and Justice (OHEJ) and the Ohio Student Environmental Coalition (OSEC).
More than 80 people, including 12 state legislators, attended the first annual Ohio Environmental Justice Short Video Contest Premiere on Thursday, March 4.  Ohio Representatives Tracy Heard and Dan Stewart served as co-hosts.  The contest gave participants – primarily university and high school students – the challenge of telling community stories of environmental health threats. “Clyde, Ohio – The Cancer Cluster” was one of three videos that received awards. Other video winners were “Behr Dayton Thermal Systems VOC Plume,” and “Surrounded: A Story of South Columbus.”
