Calling all Missouri 5th Grade Students!
Fifth-grade students across Missouri are involved in protecting our environment and are sharing their experience with the world by participating in the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ 2012 Earth Day video and slogan contests. The deadline to enter is Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012.
Watch last year’s winning video which was created by the Go Green Club, Willard Intermediate School.
Missouri 5th grade teachers are encouraged to register and bring their classes to our 18th annual Earth Day celebration to be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 20, 2012, at the Missouri State Capitol south lawn.
The department sponsors and hosts the event at the Capitol each year. Along with our Ask A Geologist booth, the department will host other information booths, games and displays about the environment and the state’s natural resources. Learn about Missouri Geology. Other state and federal agencies also participate. Teachers and students, hope to see you April 20. Register today. –Joe
