K-12 Students and Teachers Invited to Apply for SeaWorld/Busch Gardens/Fujifilm Environmental Excellence Awards
Deadline: November 30, 2007

Since 1993, Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks have recognized the outstanding efforts of K-12 students and teachers across the United States who are working at the grassroots level to protect and preserve the environment.

The SeaWorld/Busch Gardens/Fujifilm Environmental Excellence Awards program provides school and community groups with a monetary award, national recognition, and some well-deserved fun at one of the company’s amusement parks. Eight projects will be selected to each receive: $10,000 to benefit the award-winning project; an all-expenses-paid trip for three students and one adult leader to an Anheuser-Busch theme park for a special awards event; a Fujifilm digital camera for use by the award-winning group; one hundred T-shirts to share with school and community partners; and award trophy and certificates for every student/group leader participant.

From the eight projects, one outstanding environmental educator/leader will be recognized. That educator will receive: $5,000; an all-expenses-paid trip for him- or herself and one guest to an Anheuser-Busch theme park for a special awards event; a Fuji-film digital camera; an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2008 National Science Teachers Association (<a href="http://www.nsta.org/">http://www.nsta.org/</a>) national conference; and an award trophy and certificate.

This is an awards program, not a grant. Project applicants should be able to demonstrate significant accomplishments that have occurred prior to the submission deadline.
