    EPA Ann ounces Native American Youth Artwork Contest: “Help Fight Environmental Crime”


    WASHINGTON
    – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced a poster artwork contest for Native American students aimed at protecting the environment by encouraging the reporting of possible environmental crimes through EPA’s tips and complaints website.

    The contest, open to all middle and high school students who are members of a federally recognized tribe, is a chance for young people to draw their visions of environmental damage from their viewpoint. EPA will use the winning artwork on its website and on posters encouraging the reporting of environmental violations.  

    Special agents with EPA’s criminal enforcement program will present plaques to winning entrants at their schools, and will give a presentation on what it is like to be an EPA criminal investigator.

    The artwork will be judged on creativity, originality and how well it depicts the message of environmental violations.  Entries must be received or postmarked by Oct. 8, 2010 to be considered. Winners will be announced in November. Students should submit artwork to:

    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
    Criminal Enforcement – “Help Fight Environmental Crime” Contest
    Denver Federal Center , Bldg 25, Ent. E–2
    P.O. Box 25227
