PENSACOLA – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Northwest District invites Escambia and Santa Rosa County fourth and fifth grade students to celebrate Earth Day by competing in an Earth Day Poster Contest.
Judges from DEP will select a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner from each county. Winning posters will be displayed on the Northwest District’s website during the month of May and will be shared on the department’s social media accounts. Winners will receive a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place certificate, and a free pass to visit one of Florida’s award-winning state parks.
Posters should reflect the importance of protecting Florida’s beautiful environment: air, water, land and ecosystems. Posters must represent one or more Earth-friendly themes. All contest entries will be on display at the Northwest District office from April 20 –30.
