In this contest, students will take a photograph or create an original illustration that documents the fragility, hope, and future of our planet’s ecosystem due to climate change.

Inspired by the work of writers Linda Hogan, Robert Hass, Wendell Berry, and Dara McAnulty, students will explore changes to local ecosystems, how the environment shapes our identity, and how our actions and awareness today can impact the future. 

Each entry must have a photo or illustration, artist's statement and signed parental permission form. You will also need to include a photo subject release form if your photograph contains a person. All entries must be received by May 5, 2022. Winners and finalists will be announced and notified on May 26, 2022. Visit the photo contest page and the submissions guidelines and rules page to learn more.
