Rachel Carson Sense of Wonder Contest 2009
What's the Contest About?
The EPA, Generations United, the Dance Exchange, and the Rachel Carson Council, Inc., announce a poetry, essay, photo and dance contest "that best expresses the Sense of Wonder that you feel for the sea, the night sky, forests, birds, wildlife, and all that is beautiful to your eyes." We want you to share this love of nature with a child and others around you. When we teach our eyes and ears and senses to focus on the wonders of nature, we open ourselves to the wonders around us.
In 2009 many people, communities and organizations across the United States will be celebrating the Year of Science, consider submitting an entry expressing how science has contributed to your sense of wonder and appreciation of the natural environment.
Contestants will work across generations to share through one of these distinct mediums their own interactions with and reflections on the wonders of nature.
Dance video entries are not limited to the moving body. You can use live performers and/ or capture movement and change visible in nature: birds landing, trees shaking in a storm, a river flowing...
Experienced and first time dancers and video makers are encouraged to participate.
