The Academy is a proud partner of the 2010 Robert Bateman Get to Know Contest, which encourages young people ages 18 and under to celebrate biodiversity in their own ‘backyard’.
The Get to Know Contest invites youth to go outdoors – or to a local zoo or aquarium – and to use these experiences with nature to inspire creative art, writing, and photography.
Inspire your students to head outside — or to the Academy — to express their experience with the natural world through art!
Winners receive wild prizes, including the opportunity to attend a weeklong Get to Know Art & Nature Camp at a National Park in Canada. The contest is open to all US residents of age 18 or younger.
Winners are selected from each of the following categories:
* Kindergarten to Grade 4
* Grades 5 to 7
* Grades 8 to 10
* Grades 11 to 12
Entries can be in the form of:
* Digital Photography
The Contest launches October 1 and runs until November 30.
