The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites the public to submit creative projects to the 3rd annual Rachel Carson intergenerational “Sense of Wonder” contest, the agency announced in a recent press release. There are four categories: photography, essay, poetry and dance. Dance is a new category this year.

Carson is considered to be the founder of the contemporary environmental movement through her landmark book, Silent Spring. Its publication is credited with reversing the nation’s pesticide policy.

The deadline for entries is June 10, 2009. The winners will be announced in September 2009.

EPA is working with the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange, Generations United, and the Rachel Carson Council, Inc. to sponsor this contest.

The contest seeks to spur and instill the same sense of wonder Carson had among all generations.
