Contest for Youth-The Save the Redwoods League

Earth Day is soon!
Celebrate Afterschool! Outdoors in the Garden State is in May!
A great project to inspire kids to respect nature – try it today on this dismal day!

********************************************

The Save the Redwoods League is sponsoring a national art contest for children and youth in kindergarten through 12th grade.
Entrants must create a postcard that illustrates what inspires them about redwood forests on one side and include on the other side a short note to President Obama
about why he should care about redwoods.

Save the Redwoods League is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting ancient redwood forests throughout their natural range.

Jennifer Benito, the League’s outreach director, said the contest “combines creative writing, civic participation, art and science.”

Postcard submissions will be accepted in three age groups:

*5-9
*10-13
*14-18

The entry deadline is April 30.

For complete rules, a list of prizes and an official entry form, go to www.SaveTheRedwoods.org/ArtContest.
Entry forms also can be requested by calling 415-362-2352 or sending an e-mail to education@SaveTheRedwoods.org.

After winners have been selected, all of the entries will be mailed to Obama.
