Write About Trees

on February 18, 2011


Oregon and Washington High School Students:

If you have a forest story, Lewis and Clark National Historical
Park in Astoria wants to hear it, in the most descriptive
language possible. Because of this, their 2011 Youth Nature
Writing Contest, open to Oregon and Washington high school
students, is themed: “Trees in the Forest.” As their website
says: “Your story could be an adventure, a deeply personal
moment of reflection, an injustice, a happy experience, a
tragedy, or anything you want to write about, as long as it’s
nonfiction and it’s about forests or a tree.” The winner will
receive $100. Second place will receive $75, and third $25.
Fourth and fifth place will receive water bottles. The top 10
writers will receive certificates of recognition. The top five
essays will be posted on their website on Earth Day, April 22,
2011 and on Facebook under “Youth Nature Writing Contest 2011.”
Essays, which must be under 500 words, will be accepted until
Thursday, March 31, 2011.
