In Barbados, 1st Annual Environmental Essay Contest

The Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary in Christ Church, Barbados, announced last month (November 30, 2010) the first Annual Environmental Essay Contest for students ages 9-18. The Contest deadline is February 19, 2011, and the winners will be invited to a special awards ceremony in March, 2011. 

Sponsored by the Canada-Barbados Environmental Youth Awards Program (CBEYA), the Essay Contest promises $4,000 in cash prizes for the top six winners, plus gift certificates for Honorable Mention winners.  It is an opportunity for students to develop and write their thoughts about the importance of the environment to Barbados, and an opportunity for the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary to provide public service.  Entry to the CBEYA Essay Contest requires an essay of 300-500 words, and the student writer must obtain the sponsorship of a teacher.
