Student Poster Contest
"Help Protect Your Waters and Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!"
The Office of the Great Lakes is providing Michigan students a way to use critical thinking and to demonstrate their knowledge of Great Lakes aquatic invasive species. As you teach your students about these invaders, have your students design a poster to convey a message to their friends, family, and neighbors about how to keep aquatic invasive species from spreading to new lakes and rivers.
* Poster size must be 11 x 17 inches, in full color or black and white, and
using pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, pen and ink, and/or acrylic paint.
