After the national and European rounds of the international competition Kids Whitness News, they scored a third success with their film Používaj, ale neznič / Use but do not Destroy which they shot for about two months.

The movie was made by five children, of whom three flew to America with their teacher Lucia Kortmanová who coached them together with her colleague Peter Pallo. Their group returned home with – apart from the precious award – also a host of new experiences form professional movie industry, priceless contacts and unique memories. Theie success is the bigger, as the Trstená moviemakers belonged among the youngest participants in the world-wide finals of the competition. Slovakia participated in the contest which started twenty-two years ago for the very first time, the Sme daily wrote by the end of July. In a short documentary movie that ranked to the best in the world, the children showed how our Earth looked more than hundred years ago, and how it looks today. They have warned about the achievements of modern technology, the increase of waste, growth of the ozone hole. They also try to point out how to prevent the destruction of Earth - by separating the waste, saving energies, using mass transport instead of individual cars.
