Earth Day 2021 is less than two weeks away (April 22), and this year, the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association would like to honor the occasion by encouraging students throughout our watershed to design a poster using the theme ... "One Thing I Can Do to Help Our River Is ..."
Entries must be done on 8 1/2 x 11 paper in a vertical format, as we plan to display some of the coolest entries in our office windows on one of the busiest street corners in Sunbury ... just a short distance from the Susquehanna River's bank. They will also be shared on the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association's website and a few may make it into local media circles.
Entries will be accepted in three different age groups: 5-8, 9-13 and 14-18. We encourage young people to use lots of color and come up with some creative ways they can help improve our river by changing things in their day-to-day lives.
Our goal with this project, beyond honoring talented youngsters across the region, is to raise awareness and offer simple solutions for those who walk past our office on how they can make a difference.
Entries should be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 21. Entries will be hung at the office, and shared online, on Earth Day, with several of the most impactful entries in each age group receiving additional prizes from the Riverkeeper office.
Please use the following submission form to enter, filling out all necessary fields for the entry to be officially accepted.
