The 2007 SeaWorld/Busch Gardens/Fujifilm Environmental Excellence Awards will recognize the outstanding efforts of students, teachers, and community groups across the United States who are working at the grassroots level to protect and preserve the environment.
All schools (grades K-12) in the U.S. are eligible to apply. Projects must be sponsored by a formally recognized school group, such as a grade level, classroom, or club. Public, private, and licensed home schools are all eligible to apply. Individual students (i.e., science fair projects) and previous award-winning projects are not eligible to apply. Community-based projects, such as those managed and operated by community service organizations, public recreation centers, 4-H clubs, and other public, nonprofit groups working to protect the environment at the grassroots level are also eligible to apply.
Eight projects will be selected. Each winning group will receive $10,000 to benefit the award-winning project; an all-expenses-paid trip for three students and one adult leader to an Anheuser-Busch theme park for a special awards event; a Fuji-film digital camera for use by award-winning group; a hundred T-shirts to share with school and community partners; and award trophy and certificates for every student/group leader participant. From the eight projects, one outstanding environmental educator/leader will be recognized. That educator will receive $5,000; an all-expenses-paid trip for themselves and one guest to an Anheuser-Busch theme park for a special awards event; a Fujifilm digital camera; an all-expenses- paid trip to the 2007 National Science Teachers Association (http://www.nsta.org/) national conference; and an award trophy and certificate.
