There is a song or poem contest for youth in fourth through eighth grade. The topic is Earth Day, with a poem submitted that is a minimum of three lines or a song written to the tune of “Old MacDonald.”

In addition, kindergarten through third grade may submit a drawing inspired by Earth Day.

The deadline for the contests is April 30.
