High school students interested in conserving the Florida black
bear and raising public awareness about bears are invited to create
a 1-minute video.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is
extending the deadline in its 2011 Florida black bear public
service announcement (PSA) contest. Launched in May, the
FWC-sponsored contest now has a deadline of Nov. 18.
High school students participating in the contest will use their
creativity to inform Floridians about black bears, so people can
live without human-bear conflicts in their communities.
The winners' videos will be posted online at MyFWC.com and
YouTube.com/MyFWCvideos. Winning entries also will be submitted to
television stations in Florida for possible airtime. There will be
other prizes as well.
