Entries Invited for SeaWorld/Busch Gardens/Fujifilm Environmental Excellence Awards
Deadline: December 19, 2003

Students, teachers, and community groups working for wildlife in their local communities are invited to apply for support through the 2004 SeaWorld/Busch Gardens/Fujifilm Environmental Excellence Awards program.

For more than a decade, the program has recognized and rewarded K-12 student groups working at the grassroots level to protect and preserve their local environment.

Beginning in 2004, eligibility for the awards has been expanded beyond school groups to recognize the efforts of community groups such as 4-H clubs, public recreation centers, scouts, and other community-service organizations working creatively to solve local environmental challenges. The program also has received new corporate support from Fujifilm.

Project submissions should demonstrate significant accomplishments completed by the December 19, 2003, deadline. The strongest of past winning projects demonstrated ongoing positive environmental impact for at least several years.

The program will accept project submissions from across the United States. Eight organizations will be awarded $10,000 to further their conservation efforts. In addition to receiving funding to support their projects, winning groups also will receive an all-expense-paid trip for three group members and one adult leader to attend the annual awards event at SeaWorld San Diego in April. From the eight projects selected, one "Outstanding Environmental Educator/Leader" will be awarded $5,000 as a special recognition. Each winning group and the outstanding educator also will receive a Fujifilm digital camera.
