One of the reasons I do 365 Holidays a Year is to make people aware of opportunities. As an educator, I’m particularly interested in learning activities and opportunities for students. World Wetland Day, February 2, fills the bill. Ramsar, the intergovernmental organization dedicated to the preservation of wetlands, and Evian Water sponsor the annual Wetlands Youth Photo Contest for ages 18-25.
The winner receives a trip to one of the International Ramsar Sites. This was the 2016 winning photograph. The 2017 contest is accepting submissions until March 2, 2017. Please pass this information to any young photographers you know.
