National Wildlife Federation’s Young Reporters for the Environment USA!

Are you interested in the environment?

The National Wildlife Federation’s Young Reporters for the Environment USA competition invites students between the ages of 13-21 to investigate an environmental issue in their community and report on it in an article, photo or photo essay, or short video.

Submissions to the national competition are due by March 15, 2014.

National winners’ entries proceed to the international competition, joining students from more than 25 countries around the world. Participants must investigate an environmental issue and report on it in writing, photography, or video. Entries must be relevant to participants’ local community, connect to a global perspective, include possible solutions, and be disseminated to an appropriate target audience.

Participants enter in one of three age categories: 13-15, 16-18, or 19-21. All Northeastern students should fall between the last two age categories. 

You may choose between three media formats:

1) Writing (article of up to 1000 words)

2) Photography (a single photo or photo essay of up to 12 photos)

3) Video (up to 3 minutes in length, in documentary or reporter/interview style)

Submissions are due to the U.S. national competition by March 15, 2014.

First place winners in each category will continue to an international competition!
