Cascadia Conservation District is pleased to announce our 6th annual Earth Day Essay Contest!
The essay contest is open to students who live or attend school in Chelan or Douglas counties and who are in grades 6th-8th.
This year, the essay question is:
Describe an experience you have had in nature, and how you connected with that experience personally. How does that make you want to be more environmentally responsible?
As students begin to think about this question, please encourage them to consider their connection to nature and their local environment. This activity is meant to encourage stewardship and integrate creative thought and writing with science.
The top three essays will get hand painted field journals created by local artist Heather A. Wallis Murphy and a student membership to the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center!
Here are the particulars:
•The essays should be 500 words or less, size 12 Times New Roman font, and double-spaced.
• Typed essays are preferred, but hand written essays will be accepted provided they are legible.
