High school students interested in conserving the Florida black bear and raising public awareness about bears are invited to create a 1-minute video.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is extending the deadline in its 2011 Florida black bear public service announcement (PSA) contest. Launched in May, the FWC-sponsored contest now has a deadline of Nov. 18.
High school students participating in the contest will use their creativity to inform Floridians about black bears, so people can live without human-bear conflicts in their communities.
The winners’ videos will be posted online at MyFWC.com, and also on the FWC’s YouTube channel: YouTube.com/MyFWCvideos.
Winning entries also will be submitted to television stations in Florida for possible airtime. There will be other prizes as well.
