Speaking of Contests…

trunk email kid

So we have announced the winners of both of our Go Green Youth Challenge contests for 2013 and you’re bummed because you just found out about them and would have entered, except you missed the deadline.  Never fear, there are more contests where that one came from…just not hosted by us (at least not until next year).  Here are a few that might hold you over until next spring, when the Go Green Youth Challenge returns.  These are all youth contests with various age ranges that focus on an environmental/outdoor message.  I will be on the lookout for more throughout the spring and summer.  And of course, if you find any neat ones you would like to pass along, be sure to put a link to them in a comment on this post.
