A contest to encourage Canadian youth to get outside and discover nature is underway at Assiniboine Park.
The 14th annual Get to Know Contest tasks youth aged 19 and younger to “get to know” their natural world and be inspired to create art in the form of writing, digital photography, video and music. The goal of the contest is to use the power of art to help youth feel more connected with nature.
Staff will partner with more than 200 local students over the coming weeks on nature photography and nature poetry, which the students can use to enter the contest.
The contest runs until August 1. Winners are eligible to receive a variety of prizes, including a chance to have their entry published in the 2014 Get to Know Calendar.
