The SeaWorld/Busch Gardens/Fujifilm Environmental Excellence Awards recognize the outstanding efforts of students and teachers across the United States who are working at the grassroots level to protect and preserve the environment. The SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund will select eight projects for awards. Each winning organization will receive $10,000; an all-expenses-paid trip for three students and one adult leader to a SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park for a special awards event; 100 T-shirts to share with school and community partners; and an award trophy and participation certificate for the project leader. From the eight projects, one outstanding environmental educator/leader will be selected to receive $5,000. The leader will also receive an all-expenses-paid trip for themselves and one guest to a SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park for a special awards event; an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2009 National Science Teachers Association national conference; and an award trophy and certificate. All schools (grades K-12) in the United States are eligible to apply including public, private, and licensed home schools. Individual students and their science fair projects are not eligible nor are previous award winners. . Projects must be sponsored by a formally recognized school group, such as a grade level, classroom, or club. Additional information is available on the Web site.
