Fun Earth Day Photo Contest For Middle Schoolers

The Energy and Environment Cabinet is holding its fifth Capture the Earth photography contest for middle school students in Kentucky.

“The goals of our photography contest are twofold,” said EEC Secretary Len Peters. “First, we want students to get outside, explore their natural surroundings and connect with nature. Second, this contest enables students to use their creativity and critical thinking skills by taking photos and explaining, in writing, how their photo can encourage others to be better stewards of the environment.”


If you’re in 6th through 8th grade, you can submit entries until 4:30 P.M. on Friday, April 3. Winner receives a one night stay at a state resort park of their choosing.
