Students Invited to Submit Entries for 2009 SeaWorld/Busch Gardens Environmental Excellence Awards
Deadline: November 28, 2008
A program of the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund (http://www.swbg-conservationfund.org/), the SeaWorld/Busch Gardens Environmental Excellence Awards recognize the outstanding efforts of students and teachers across the United States who are working at the grassroots level to protect and preserve the environment.
Eight projects will be selected. Each winning organization will receive $10,000; an all-expenses-paid trip for three students and one adult leader to a SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park for a special awards event; one hundred T-shirts to share with school and community partners; and an award trophy and participation certificate for the project leader.
From the eight projects, one outstanding environmental educator/leader will be selected to receive $5,000; an all-expenses-paid trip for themselves and one guest to a SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park for a special awards event; an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2009 National Science Teachers Association (http://nsta.org/) national conference; and an award trophy and certificate.
This is an awards program, not a grant program. Applicants should be able to demonstrate significant accomplishments that have occurred prior to the submission deadline.
All schools (grades K-12) in the U.S. are eligible to apply. Projects must be sponsored by a formally recognized school group such as a grade level, classroom, or club. Public, private, and licensed home schools are also eligible to apply. Individual students (e.g., science fair projects) and previous award-winning projects are not eligible to apply. Visit the program’s Web site for complete program guidelines.
