High Schoolers Can Win Prizes in Wildlife-Focused Social Media Contest

Mar 21, 2018

Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey is inviting high school students to put their social media prowess to work to promote wildlife conservation – and to win scholarships. The fun and educational “Species on the Edge 2.0” challenge asks students to submit an original social media campaign highlighting the importance of wildlife protection in New Jersey.

The contest, which is free to enter, “capitalizes on high school students’ expertise with social media platforms, and provides them with the opportunity to showcase their talent, creativity and love of nature,” says CWF. “The contest helps to develop students’ experience in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) and their project management skills.”

Contest applications are due by May 1, and all entries are due by May 18.

All entries are eligible to win a day in the field with a wildlife biologist. In addition, first-, second- and third-place winners will receive, respectively, $1,000, $500 and $250 in scholarship money.

The official contest kit, with guidelines and an entry form, is online at conservewildlifenj.org.

Direct any questions to CWF Director of Education Stephanie D’Alessio at stephanie.dalessio@conservewildlifenj.org or 609-984-0621.

The mission of Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey is to preserve rare and imperiled species that live in, breed in, and migrate through New Jersey. —J.K.-H.
