As Earth Day reaches its milestone 50th anniversary in April 2020, nature and the environment are facing incredible and unprecedented challenges – including loss of biodiversity, pollution, degradation of our ecosystems (due to development), and climate change. Through this competition, it is hoped that Jamaicans will appreciate the environment and learn to protect it.

The competition is open to all children and youth aged 12 to 19 years, or students in Grades 7 to 13. Individual entries are welcomed in the Literary Arts, Poster, Photography and Design Model categories. There will also be an open video category, for submission of a one-minute video clip on environmental conservation.

Deadline for submission of entries is MONDAY, MARCH 9, 2020. Winners will be announced at the annual Earth Day Competition ceremony on Friday, April 24.

For further queries please contact Mrs. Eartha Cole (Education Outreach Officer) or Ms. Kareen Parks (Assistant Education Outreach Officer) at (876) 922-0626-6 extension 352 or 247 respectively; or email:
