Vote for the Eco-Hero contest winner
5 finalists compete for chance to visit Machu Picchu
Last December, Zoo Miami and Local 10 asked viewers to nominate a student (ages 11-14) from Miami-Dade, Broward, or Monroe Counties who has volunteered to do something extraordinary to help the environment. Those students would get the chance of being selected as South Florida’s student “Eco-Hero.”
Five students were hand-picked by Zoo Miami's Ron Magill, from the dozens of kids who were nominated.
The winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Cusco and the “Lost City” of Machu Picchu in Peru courtesy of Inkaterra Authentic Nature Travel.
The trip will be escorted by Zoo Miami’s Ron Magill and will be documented by Local 10 anchor Kristi Krueger.
Below are the five amazing finalists.
