SEEC Arts Competition

Mission: This competition offers students an opportunity to showcase their work about environmental science and activism. Participants can submit their interpretations of "what does nature means to you" in the form of visual arts, photography, or poetry. We hope to inspire students to learn more about the environment and take initiative in impacting their community.

Here are the rules:

  1. The piece of work must be related to environmental education, science, or activism.

  2. This competition is open for all students (must be submitted in English).

  3. This competition is open to all NC students.

  4. If you did not win an award, we will not contact you (we will also be posting winners online).

  5. Judges will contain North Carolina School of Science and Math & university educators.

  6. Work will not be accepted if it has one’s name on it. Name can only be entered on form of submission.

Submission date: Feb 29, 2020
