Earth Day Photo & Essay Contest
Since 2007, IGES has sponsored the Earth Day Photo & Essay Contests for students in grades 5-8. This unique national effort aims to engage students in experiencing and thinking about our changing world.
To participate in the contest, students must take a photograph depicting change in their local environment during the week of Earth Day (April 22-29) and submit an essay about the change taking place in the photograph.
