Earth Day Photo Challenge 2017

Earth Day Photo Challenge 2017

Do you celebrate Earth Day at school? Does your community have an action plan to take better care of our planet?
We want you to show us why Earth Day is important to you. It may be a place in nature that needs cleaning, a park you enjoy on weekends, or any way you interpret the importance of Earth Day.
Share your vision with us through the lens of your camera or smartphone. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
