Contests

Environmental contests encourage kids to learn more about protecting their environment and empower them to help change the world.  Teachers can introduce contests to students in their classrooms or contests can be pursued at home.  By entering these contests, kids will gain a better understanding of environmental education, fine arts, social studies and science.  Contests are fun, offer kids the opportunity to win cool prizes, a few moments of fame and, most importantly, to learn.
