Species on the Edge 2.0 Social Media Contest
CWF invites high school students from across the state to submit a series of original social media posts showing why it is important to protect wildlife in New Jersey. Register by February 28, 2020. Contest runs March 1-8, 2020.
The fun and educational Species on the Edge 2.0 Social Media Contest capitalizes on high school students' expertise with social media platforms and provides them with the opportunity to showcase their talent, creativity, and love of nature.
Students will create their own original content (for example: video, text, photograph, computer graphic) or use existing Conserve Wildlife Foundation content to create a series of posts focusing on a vulnerable New Jersey species that CWF helps protect.
The contest helps to develop students’ experience in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) and apply critical thinking and project management skills.
Best of all, it’s free – and gives students the chance to win prizes! All entries will be eligible to win a day in the field with a wildlife biologist.
- 1st place wins $1,000
- 2nd place wins $500
- 3rd place wins $250
