In the 1970's the Environmental Protection Agency hired photographers to document environmental issues and challenges across the country.
Now there is a contest to document your environment! Youth ages 13 and up are encouraged to use one of the original photos for inspiration to create your own Documerica records. There are 3 categories and 3 ages groups (13-15, 16-18, 18 and up students)
Graphic Art: Use any type of graphic art including scans of painting, photos, cartoons, etc.
Video: Create a video less than 2 minutes in length for your environment.
Poetry: Any form of poetry is accepted, but there is a 300 word limit.
Go to Documerica for the original photographs and contest information.
