Stacey explains that the photo was taken at the Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan first annual Girl Scout Camporee, in August 2019: "The Girl Scout's AMAZING Outdoor Education Specialist Liz Bruen planned and implemented the entire weekend. This picture was taken at one of the stations she had set up for the girls to learn about water and conservation efforts."

Congratulations to Stacey, who has won $50 in credit at the Project WET Store. She says that she's consulting with Liz to find out what materials will be most useful to the Girl Scouts!

The quality and variety of photos submitted to the contest was truly remarkable. We had entrants from four countries, including three of our international partners in Argentina, Turkey and Colombia, and five states. We saw activities ranging from classic favorites such as the Blue Planet and the Long Haul to adaptations of less well-known activities, like Molecules in Motion. We saw people of all ages--from preschoolers to adults.  Most of all, we saw lots of smiles and enjoyment in learning about our most precious natural resource, water.

Thank you to all of our entrants, and we hope to see more of your photos in the next contest! Keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts for your next opportunity to share your love for water and Project WET!
