Maria begins sorting and organizing the entries for the Species on the Edge Art & Essay Contest

Entries for the Species on the Edge Art & Essay Contest have been arriving at our office since early January.  The contest ended recently and now the hard work begins.  We need to sort, count, and organize over 2,000 entries and ready them for judgement day.  That job will be done by a biologist, an educator, and an artist, all who generously agreed to volunteer their time to choose the winners.  I don’t envy them since there are so many outstanding entries and the hard work by the students is evident in all of them.  It is refreshing to know that thousands of kids learned about NJ’s rarest wildlife residents through the Species on the Edge Art & Essay Contest.  Hopefully, that knowledge will be transferred into actions that help to preserve and protect NJ’s environment.
