Log on to YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/Marriott, for a chance to win a six-day, five-night “eco-cation” to the Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort in Costa Rica.

To enter, click on post video and upload a video response — three minutes or less — now through Earth Day, April 22, that best demonstrates how you, your family and friends are contributing to a greener, healthier planet.

The green video contest kicks off the company's month-long support of Environmental Awareness Month and its partnership with “Clean Up the World,” an Australian-based global organization with 35 million volunteers in 120 countries.

From New York to Hong Kong, more than 150,000 Marriott associates will be participating in various eco-friendly projects from cleaning up beaches, rivers and parks to restoring natural habitats and tree planting. Additionally, Marriott is holding its first-ever green products fair, offering copies of the book “TrueGreen” with easy-to-apply environmental tips, and planting trees at sites around the world to symbolize the growth of the company and its 80 years in business.

The Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort sits on an 1,100 acre rainforest and offers a variety of activities to enjoy Costa Rica's ecological wonderland of tropical forests, national parks & abundant wildlife. Guests can choose such activities as tree canopy tours and 18 holes of golf amidst Jaco Beach or they can enjoy the unique wildlife — scarlet macaws, howler and spider monkeys, two-toed sloths, toucans, and three-toed armadillos.
