Now in its 17th year in the United States, the Get to Know Contest is sponsored by the Wildlife Habitat Council, National Recreation and Park Association, Wildlife Forever, and more than 50 other partners from coast to coast. The contest encourages youth (19 years of age and younger) to develop a deep appreciation for nature and biodiversity by getting outdoors and creating art, writing, digital photography, video, and music. Whether their outdoor experience begins with a single tree in a backyard or acres of boreal forest in a national park, youth can learn about and celebrate their local biodiversity by participating in the contest. Winners will receive a variety of “wild” prizes, including the chance to have their entries published in the 2016 Get to Know Calendar. For the art, writing, and photography categories, three winning entries will be chosen from each of the following grade ranges: Kindergarten to Grade 4, Grades 5 to 7, Grades 8 to 10, and Grades 11 to 12. For the video and music categories, a total of three winning entries will be chosen.
Deadline: November 1, 2016, for entries
