As part of the Waterway Cleanup, the Marine Industries Association of South Florida hosts an essay and short story writing contest for middle and high school students in Broward County schools. The entries should focus on the role our waterways play in our community, whether historically, economically or environmentally. Middle and high school students also may submit recycled art projects.
The Waterway Cleanup essay contest (high school students) winner receives $500, while the Waterway Cleanup short story (middle school students) winner will receive $250. The recycled art contest (middle and high school students) winners will receive $250 each. Winners will be announced at the Waterway Cleanup Trash Bash.
Simply TYPE your essay and submit it along with a completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the title of the contest in the subject line. Please include your name, email and phone number. Recycled art projects can be mailed or dropped off at the MIASF headquarters at 221 SW 3rd Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Fl 33312 (MIASF is not responsible for lost or damaged entries). All entries must be submitted by February 16, 2021.
