ePals, Inc., National Geographic and Airbus have teamed up to encourage students worldwide to "See the Bigger Picture" by participating in a special photo contest focusing on sustainability and biodiversity. The deadline for photo submissions is Sept. 8, 2009.

Educators and students can find out more information about the photo contest by visiting the ePals Biodiversity Focus Area. Here students can learn about biodiversity and the importance of conservation, while getting ideas about what to capture with their cameras. Students also can enter the contest by logging onto www.seethebiggerpicture.org.

In the United States and Canada, students ages 6-14 are eligible to take part (in the rest of the world, the age eligibility is 6-16).

The photo contest was designed to support The Green Wave project - a United Nations initiative to educate young people about biodiversity and how to help build a more sustainable future.

Five grand prizewinners will be selected for an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., where they will spend time at the headquarters of the National Geographic Society.
