New Student Contest: The Environment Is in You
In what ways is climate change impacting the place where you live?
In this contest, open until May 5, 2022, 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 four environmental writers—Linda Hogan, Robert Hass, Wendell Berry, and Dara McAnulty—students will explore changes to local systems, how the environment shapes our identity, and how our actions and awareness today can impact the future.
