The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and the Branch of Tribal Climate Resilience partners with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in collaboration with multiple federal, Tribal, and non-governmental organizations to offer an experiential, youth-driven conservation leadership training for native high school and college-aged youth known as NYCALC.
NYCALC's mission is to develop future conservation leaders with the skills, knowledge, and tools to address environmental change and conservation challenges to better serve their schools and home communities.
For more information about NYCALC, visit the official website.
Our fall contest begins September 15th and submissions are due by November 15th.
For the visual arts and photo contest, draw, paint, or take a picture of something you value in your community that may be at risk or vulnerable. Include a caption for your art describing the current impact and what might be done about it.
Submit all captioned art and any questions by email to: Youth.Art.Contest@bia.gov or follow your teacher's class instructions.
