As part of the Mayor's Environment Expo, the photography contest encourages students to consider the environmental community that surrounds them and to take action to protect it.
If you are a student in grades 7 to 12, grab your camera and capture your community, classroom or neighbourhood. Then enter your best shot into one of the following categories:
- Energy Consumption
- Green House Gasses

Enter today! The contest closes at 4:00 p.m. on April 22, 2016.
