Kids Rappahannock Nature Bingo & Photo Contest
July 15, 2020 - August 16, 2020
FRIENDS OF THE RAPPAHANNOCK invites you to get outdoors this summer and play a fun game of Rappahannock Nature Bingo.
If you are a kid between the ages of 4-17 living in the Rappahannock River Watershed, we want you to get outside and find some awesome examples of the super cool wildlife that you can see right in your own backyard.
Take a camera with you on your nature strolls, hikes and river adventures and enter the FOR KIDS PHOTO CONTEST.
To participate in FOR Nature Bingo you must:
- Be a nature-loving kid ages 4-17.
- Have parental permission to participate.
- Download the Bingo Board for your age group.
- Have the ability to get outdoors safely. You don’t necessarily need to go to the river (but if you do- wear a life jacket), many of the items in these BINGO squares can be found literally in your backyard or your neighborhood if you keep your eyes open.
- Once you complete a row on the bingo board, upload the board here – and we’ll mail you an FOR sticker.
In addition to the above rules, to participate in the FOR Kids Photo Contest you must also:
- Have access to digital photography equipment either a cell phone or a digital camera.
- Shoot and edit the photos yourself. Parents may upload them to the contest web page, but the actual photography must be done 100% by the kid.
- Upload your photos HERE between July 15, 2020 and August 16, 2020.
- Give FOR permission to post your photo(s) and your name on our website, social media platforms, our newsletter, press releases and the like.
- Winners will be notified and announced the week of August 16-22.
All FOR Nature BINGO players will receive an FOR sticker for participating in the contest. One lucky BINGO player will win an FOR “Save the Crabs” t-shirt.
The FOR Kids Photo Contest will be judged by FOR staff members. There will be a winner chosen in each age group (4-8 yrs old / 9-12 yrs old/ 13-17 years old) and there will also be a grand prize winner. Age group winners will receive a t-shirt. The grand prize winner will receive a Family Environmental Excursion with one of our FOR River Stewards. (FOR Staff and their immediate family members are not eligible to receive prizes)
