(KFVS) - The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is asking Missouri fifth-graders to submit ideas for next year’s Earth Day slogan.
The theme of Earth Day 2014 is “Watersheds” and the successful slogan contest entry will reflect that theme.
The winning student will be honored at Missouri’s 20th annual Earth Day celebration at the Missouri State Capitol Building. The winner will also receive a $50 gift card donated by Central Bank in Jefferson City. Entries will be accepted from now through Oct. 16 and the winner will be announced in December. The contest is limited to Missouri fifth-grade students. In the event of duplicate slogan submissions, the winner will be determined by the date the entry was received.
The 2013 Earth Day theme was “Energy Efficiency”. The winning slogan was “Energy Efficiency: It’s a Bright Idea,” and was submitted by Shelby Stille from Montgomery City Elementary School.
