All of you kids in the world, between 3 and 12 years old... Listen up!!!
You have a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity by joining the year-long, global art contest for children ages 3 and 12 launched by Project AWARE:
Threatened Underwater Animals: You Can Make a Difference.
How does it work? Simple:
- First, find out about threatened animals that live in the ocean. Think about why they might be threatened, it could be pollution, overfishing or habitat loss.
- Pick one animal you really like and create a painting or drawing to show the animal in its ocean environment. On the back of your artwork, tell us:
- Why you like this animal
- Why you think it should be protected
- Why you think it is threatened
- Suggest one specific step people can take to protect it
Three winners will be chosen from each global region and age group - 3 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years and 9 to12 years. Artwork will be judged by the Project AWARE team and associates.
Selected winners will receive a special Ocean Ambassador Plaque along with a certificate and global recognition on the Project AWARE website.
IMPORTANT: All entries must be received by your local Project AWARE office by 8th November 2010.
Good luck from RSTP to all of you kids entering the contest!!!
