The Young Naturalist Awards is an inquiry-based science competition for students in grades 7-12 to promote participation and communication in science. You too can join scientists in exploring the world around you. The Young Naturalist Awards program invites you to plan and conduct your own scientific investigation, one that will include observations, questions, predictions, trips into the field to gather data, and analysis. You are not expected to make a new scientific discovery. However, your investigation should provide you with a new understanding about your question. Tell us about your Investigation in an essay that includes tables, charts, or graphs and artwork or photographs that help illustrate your findings.
