North American Conference on Environmental Education
03 May 2010 | News story
The NAAEE photo contest on the theme "Paint Me a Picture" is accepting submissions until June 10. Also, registration opens June 1 for the NAAEE Annual Conference starting September 29 in Buffalo-Niagra, New York. CEC member Brian Day is Executive Director of NAAEE, a professional association for environmental education.
Seeking to visualize feelings of wholeness, of beauty, and of community that arise when an environmental ideal is attained, the fourth annual photography contest is being launched by the North American Association for Environmental Education in connection with its annual conference. Entry forms and rules can be found on the NAAEE Web site at www.naaee.org/conference. Entry deadline is June 10, 2010.
NAAEE seeks photos that will inspire people to achieve environmental excellence. Entries may reflect anything that reflects the theme “Paint Me a Picture.” The photography contest is one element of a larger effort by NAAEE to re-invigorate the use of the arts in the EE field, and is sponsored by the Albert I. Pierce Foundation for the fourth year in a row.
The contest is held in conjunction with the upcoming NAAEE Annual Conference in Buffalo-Niagara, New York, on September 29-October 2, 2010. The top four photos will be displayed at the conference for three days. A first, second, and third place winner in the Advanced category, and the first place winner in the Amateur category, will receive cash prizes.
NAAEE is the professional association for environmental education. Its members promote professional excellence in nonformal organizations, K-12 classrooms, universities (for both instructors and students), government agencies, and corporate settings throughout North America and in over 55 other countries. Since 1971, the Association has created opportunities for its members to improve their skills in creating and delivering programs and services that teach people how to think, not what to think. The Albert I. Pierce Foundation, www.aipfoundation.org, is the primary grant sponsor of this project.
