ST. LOUIS AQUARIUM ESSAY CONTEST: The St. Louis Aquarium Foundation is holding a marine animal essay contest for students in grades K-12. Kids and teens are invited to submit a two-page, handwritten essay in response to a question designed for their age group. Two runners up in each group will win two free tickets to the St. Louis Wheel, and the winner will receive a pass for two free aquarium admissions, two free tickets to the St. Louis Wheel and a $10 gift card to the Aquarium Gift Shop.

Entries are due by April 13 and should be submitted by sending photos or scanned PDFs of the essays to using the subject line “Essay Contest – [student’s name] – Age [student’s age].” If the student is under 18, a parent or legal guardian must submit the entry, and doing so grants the St. Louis Aquarium Foundation permission to use the essay on its website, social media pages or for any publicity purposes. If pictures are included, they do not count as one of the written pages. Essays must be handwritten by the student in his or her own words, and they will be evaluated on skill in answering the question as well as grammar and spelling.
