The Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation (PPFF), is hosting a Stewardship poster contest for middle schooler and a Stewardship video contest for high school and college students. The purpose of the contests is to educate and inspire people to take care of our public lands and raise awareness of the negative impact graffiti has on our natural world.

Students are asked to create original works, using any art medium or techniques, genre or shooting style, that will educate and inspire others to steward our public lands. The winning poster will be displayed in the State Capital Building during the month of February, at PPFF’s annual awards banquet in May, and on PPFF’s website.  The wining video will be shown at PPFF’s annual awards banquet and on PPFF’s website.  Both contests feature cash prizes.

“We are excited to offer this opportunity to students to join us in educating the public about stewardship of our public lands,” says Marci Mowery, President, Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation. “We look forward to seeing the creative ideas the students will bring to this important, multigenerational issue.”

Details about the contests are available on PPFF’s website,  The contest is made possible by a grant from the Alexander Stewart, MD Foundation.
