America/Jamaica

Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 each year to promote the preservation of the Earth's natural resources. The Natural History Museum of Jamaica (NHMJ), a division of the Institute of Jamaica, is inviting entries for its 2017 Earth Day Competition which will be hosted under the theme “Sustainable Tourism For Development​”.

The UN designation for 2017 is International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development​. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) describes it as "a unique opportunity to raise awareness on the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among public and private sector decision-makers and the public, while mobilizing all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change."

Entries will be judged on the premise that ample research has gone into what is produced. It is hoped that our nation’s youth can become a voice of change through their creative and expressive ideas on our aim at Jamaica practicing Sustainable ​ Tourism.

The competition is open to all children and youth aged 12 - 19 years; or students in grades 7 - 13. Eligible persons are asked to submit individual entries to the Literary Arts (formerly Essay), Poster and Photography categories. 

The deadline for submission of entries is Friday, March 10, 2017. Judging will be done subsequently and the winners will be announced at the annual Earth Day Competition Awards Ceremony on Thursday, April 27, 2017.
