All fifth grade students in the state are encouraged to participate in plans for Earth Day 2013 which is scheduled for April 19 at the Capitol in Jefferson City.  “We are focusing on energy efficiency,” said Bungart, “We’re asking those students to come up with slogans that match that type of theme.  The slogan is typically promoted through our news releases and is displayed throughout the event.  We will recognize the winner at the opening ceremony that day.”

All entries must be received no later than February 28th and winners will be announced in March.  More details can be found by visiting http://www.dnr.mo.gov/earthday/docs/eday2013slogancontest.pdf.

Press Release:

Missouri’s fifth-grade students are known to have lots of energy, and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources is seeking to tap that energy to provide ideas for the Earth Day 2013 slogan.

The Department of Natural Resources is once again sponsoring a slogan contest for Missouri fifth-grade students. Students are asked to create their slogan ideas based on the theme “Energy Efficiency.” The student submitting the winning entry will be honored at the Earth Day 2013 celebration, April 19 at the Capitol in Jefferson City.

A slogan contest entry form, rules and details are available on the Department of Natural Resources’ website: http://www.dnr.mo.gov/earthday/docs/eday2013slogancontest.pdf.

Deadline for the slogan contest is Feb. 28. The winners will be announced in March.

The slogan contest winner will receive a $50 gift card donated by Central Bank in Jefferson City. In case of a duplicate slogan contest entry, the winner will be determined by the date the entry was received.

Earth Day 2013 represents the Department of Natural Resources’ 19th year sponsoring the event, which will include educational displays and activities from the department as well as a number of other state and federal agencies. The day’s events will also include a number of stage shows and contests. Although geared toward upper elementary school age students, the event is free and open to the public.
