Hi Everyone:

If you know any middle/high school students and educators interested in climate change, please share this information on a new scholarship opportunity.

The One Earth Award provides $1,000 scholarships to four students whose creative works encourage the awareness of, and meaningful responses to, pressing issues of human-caused climate change. Additional scholarships are also available to two students from each of the following states: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

All students in grades 7–12 (ages 13 and up) are eligible to participate as part of the larger Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, the nation’s longest-running and most prestigious recognition program for creative teens.

Deadlines to submit works vary by region, with the earliest deadlines falling at the beginning of December 2018. You can visit the guidelines and deadlines page for information on when and how students can submit their work. We accept visual art and writing across 29 categories. I’ve attached a flyer with additional information on the One Earth Award, and general information on how students can submit their work is below.

There are Twitter and Facebook posts that you can quickly share with your networks to increase awareness of the scholarship (share Twitter post | share Facebook post).  Please see below for additional information.

Thank you,

Dixie
