If you know a student (ages 11-14) in Miami-Dade, Broward, or Monroe Counties who has volunteered to do something extraordinary to help the environment (e.g.; started a recycling program, organized a beach cleanup, contributed to wildlife rehabilitation, etc.), nominate them for the chance of being selected as South Florida’s student “Eco-Hero.”
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 and chief photographer William Damas.
The resulting documentary will be broadcast at a later date as a Local 10 special.
The winner gets to bring an adult parent/guardian making the total prize package worth over $10,000. The trip will take place in late July of 2013.
Anyone can submit a nomination but the person nominated must be a student between the ages of 11 and 14 (as of December 31st, 2013) who lives in Miami-Dade, Broward, or Monroe Counties.
