Louisville Zoo offers project-based learning conservation competition


The Louisville Zoo invites students to join its mission to improve the bond between people and the planet by participating in the Conservation Campaign Challenge. This project-based learning opportunity will give students a chance to win a special field trip experience for students in their grade.

The event encourages students to research local and global environmental issues and to identify a need they are most interested in to use as a basis for a conservation project. Educators and their students will be asked to create and implement a plan of action that will build awareness of this issue within their school and/or community.

The competition is open to students in grades K-12. Submissions should be limited to one per grade level per participating school, with a maximum of 120 students per submission. Groups whose projects are selected will be invited to send an entire grade level (up to 120 students) to the zoo on Endangered Species Day, April 24, for a special field trip experience.

The submission deadline is March 9. Email McKenzie Gollar for more information.
