Oak Meadow’s high school environmental science teacher, Julia West, would like to share the following Arctic Art and Video contest with all of you. It would be a great addition to any biome study presented in the Oak Meadow coursework. As Julia stated, “There is nothing better than science and art combined!”
2016 Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 
K-12 Arctic Art & Video Contest 
Information: https://assw2016.org/engage/contest
Channel your inner Arctic artist and submit an original piece of artwork or video to help celebrate Arctic Science Summit Week (www.assw2016.org)!
The contest is open to K-12 students everywhere, and cash prizes will be awarded to 1st and 2nd place in each category. Winners and honorable mention entries will be featured online and on the UAF campus during the conference (March 9-20).
This year’s theme is “Many Lands, One Arctic.” Your art or video should spotlight Arctic science, which includes plants, animals, people, food, health, oceans, rivers, ice, glaciers, changing cultures, weather, climate, storms, fire… to get you started. Think about how the lands and people of the Arctic are connected. The rest is up to you!
