Giving the Land a Voice: A Multi-media Contest for Youth!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Wildlife Refuge Association are looking for youth ages 15-24 to tell us what they think about the future of the National Wildlife Refuge System! Last summer, USFWS and NWRA launched a year-long process called "Conserving the Future: Wildlife Refuges and the Next Generation" to build a new, bold strategic vision for the National Wildlife Refuge System. We believe that youth need to be an integral part of the vision process, but we need your help to get them involved in the conversation!

If you know any youth, please encourage them to get involved and submit their entries by May 27, 2011. If you know of any youth networks in your state or region, please forward the contest information on to those networks and listserves. Prizes include a trip to Madison, Wisconsin to attend the Conserving the Future conference, gift cards to outdoor recreation stores, and more! The contest entry form and additional information are attached. For more information about the multi-media contest and the vision process, please visit
