Earth Day Network is excited to announce the second annual Sustainability Journalism Award. Open to high school students ages 13 to 18, the competition seeks to bring hard facts on environmental and sustainability issues to entire school communities – in the students’ own words. This year we have opened the competition to include broadcasting and photography entries!
What is it?
It’s a competition for high school journalists (print, broadcasting, and photography) on topics related to sustainability. Students can submit pieces on the three thematic areas:
- The importance of healthy, sustainable food served in school
- What your school community is doing to combat climate change
- How your school is promoting environmental education
Submitted entries must be published in a school newspaper or broadcast on a school media channel and must cover one of the three thematic areas.
Who can enter?
U.S. high school students ages 13 to 18.
What could I win?
First prize: $500. Second prize: $250. Third prize (x3) $100
How to enter?
To enter, you must visit www.earthday.org/journalismaward and submit your publication online. The contest is open until March 31, 2014 and the winders will be announced on Earth Day – April 22, 2014!
Thanks to all the students who participated! Your reporting was an inspiration for our work fighting for healthier schools.
