The 2016 Wisconsin Aldo Leopold Writing Contest
The Aldo Leopold Foundation and the Aldo Leopold Nature Center are pleased to announce the 2016 Wisconsin Aldo Leopold Writing Contest for all Wisconsin students in grades 9-12! Students are invited to submit essays based on the works of Aldo Leopold, especially Leopold's essay "Good Oak". The top 6 essayists will receive cash awards presented at the Aldo Leopold Legacy Center in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
This year's essay topic is based upon Aldo Leopold's "Good Oak" essay from A Sand County Almanac: Why is it important to know where your food and energy come from, and how can you or how have you made changes in your family or school life that reflect this understanding?
