Lights … Camera … Earth Day Photo & Essay Contest!
February 14, 2012
Springtime is arriving. And changes are taking place in the air, land, water, plants and animals all around us. Celebrate the season with students across the country by taking part in IGES’s 2012 Earth Day Photo & Essay Contest.
Enter the contest by taking a photograph of something that is changing in your local environment. The photo can be taken anytime from Monday April 16 through Friday April 27, 2012 (Earth Day itself is April 22). It can be a photo of something changing in your backyard or neighborhood, near your school or in a local park, on the ground or high in the sky, off in the distance toward the horizon, or anywhere you happen to be.
Then, research and write an essay (400 words or less) that answers the following questions:
• What is the change taking place in your photograph?
This contest is open to all U.S. students in grades 5-8.
Entries and entry forms must be received by email or postmarked by May 11, 2012. Photographs must be original, authentic and unpublished. Click here to read more about the rules of the contest, submission guidelines, prizes and more.
