2013 Get to Know Contest
Art • Writing • Photography • Video • Music
The Assiniboine Park Conservancy is proud to once again be the Manitoba launch location for the annual Get to Know Contest!
Canadian youth (19 and younger) are invited to go outside and "get to know" their natural world. Now in its 14th year, the Contest encourages all young people to develop a deeper appreciation for nature and biodiversity by getting outdoors and creating art, writing, digital photography, video and music.
The goal of the contest is to engage the power of art to help youth feel more connected with nature. It's all about making connections with other environmentally passionate youth, using the creative arts to convey their passion, and having their accomplishments celebrated. We invite youth to Connect…Create …Celebrate! with the Get to Know Contest.
Youth just need to get outdoors and share their outdoor experiences through the contest. So whether their outdoor experience begins with a single tree in a backyard or acres of boreal forest in a national park, the contest offers youth the opportunity to learn about and celebrate their local biodiversity. Winners will receive all kinds of wild prizes, including a chance to have their entry published in the 2014 Get to Know Calendar and tons of other great prizes.
The contest opens April 8 and runs until November 1.
