SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord Aquarium seeks top 10 Young Environmentalists

In an online contest, SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord Aquarium is giving 10 students, between ages 8-12, the chance to earn a spot on its SEA LIFE Young Environmentalist panel.

The panelists will share SEA LIFE's "Breed, Rescue, Protect" conservation message at their schools, get an annual pass to the aquarium and participate in grand-opening events.

To enter, students must:
1. Write a 200-word essay that answers, "How can you protect your favorite endangered sea creature?"
2. Create a piece of art, using any medium, illustrating the endangered sea creature.
3. Be willing to talk to their school and class about the importance of taking care of sea creatures.

Submissions are due by Nov. 18, and are accepted through Facebook at or by email to To view terms and conditions, click here.

All entries will go on the aquarium's Facebook page, and winners will be chosen and announced in December.
