The Earth Day Network is accepting entries for the 2014 Healthy and Sustainable School Food Journalism Competition. The competition is designed to highlight the hard facts about school food in the words of students who eat it.
Open to United States high school students between the ages of 13 and 18, all articles submitted for consideration must be about the importance of healthy, sustainable food served in school; what the student’s school community is doing to combat climate change; and how the student’s school is promoting environmental education. All articles must have been published by the participant’s school newspaper. This year, EDN has opened the competition to include broadcasting and photography entries. Eligibility of articles published by news media other than the participant’s school newspaper will be determined at the discretion of the sponsors.
Prizes include $500 for first place, $250 for second place, and three $100 prizes for third place.
Contest is open until February 28, 2014 and the winders will be announced on Earth Day – April 22, 2014!
