Creative Opportunities for Teens: #3

Teen Ink Environment Contest

Hybrid cars? Organic food? Solar and wind energy? Pay-as-you-throw trash programs? Required recycling? If you have a plan to save the world, we want to hear about it. And if you know a lot about a current problem facing the planet – pollution, overpopulation, natural resource consumption/destruction – share your thoughts with others by writing a persuasive essay.

Winning stories are published in Teen Ink magazine and contest winners receive a copy of the magazine featuring their work. Plus, they’ll have the opportunity to choose from an exciting selection of Teen Ink merchandise – apparel and other items – available exclusively from Teen Ink.
