GLIN==> Invasive Species Student Poster Contest



Student Poster Contest
"Help Protect Your Waters and Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!"
Grades 6-8
Aquatic Invasive Species Student Poster Contest

The Department of Environmental Quality's Office of the Great Lakes is providing Michigan students, grades 6 through 8, an opportunity to use critical thinking and to demonstrate their knowledge of Great Lakes aquatic invasive species.  Students are invited to design a poster to convey a message to their friends, family and neighbors about how to keep AIS from spreading to new lakes and rivers such as removing plants from boats and other watercrafts.  Poster submissions must include an explanation, not more than 150 words, describing the information presented in the poster.  

The winning poster will be selected based on the accuracy of the message, legibility and ability to be reproduced.  Last year, over 700 creative posters were submitted from students throughout Michigan.  

The winning student will have their poster signed by Governor Jennifer M. Granholm as the official poster for Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week, June 3-11, 2006, to be reproduced and distributed statewide 
and will have an opportunity to participate in an episode of Michigan United Conservation Clubs' Michigan Out-of-DoorsTM Television.  Winning and honorable mention entries will be posted on the Department of Environmental Quality website.  All submissions must be received no later than Friday, February 17, 2006.
