The Summer Reading Challenge this year is all about the environment and features a group young people who try to save their home town of Wilderville.
To celebrate we want you to create some art that inspires others to care about nature and the world around them.
The Challenge: Design a poster, one-page comic, or short video about an environmental topic that matters to you.

What should my entry be about?
Think of an environmental issue that you feel strongly about. For example:
- An endangered animal

What should I do with my entry when I’m finished?
