Maryland kids are encouraged to get out the markers and make a poster for the Reclaim the Bay Poster Contest now underway.
The Maryland Department of the Environment invites students in kindergarten through eighth grade to participate in MDE’s first Earth Day poster contest. This year’s theme is “Reclaim the Bay” and submissions are due April 8. Students are encouraged to submit an entry that depicts what Marylanders can do to help restore the Chesapeake Bay.
Maryland is a leader in the Bay watershed’s restoration efforts. The purpose of Maryland’s Reclaim the Bay campaign is to bring public awareness to these efforts and let Marylanders know what they can do to help restore the Bay. This poster contest is a great way to challenge young environmental advocates around the state to think about what they can do to Reclaim the Bay.
The winner and honorable mentions of the poster contest will be announced the week of Earth Day, April 22-26, 2013.
