    I am a retired teacher, volunteering in art and English in a small Baja town….Loreto, BCS. We do nature activities, art, and write. Your contests are limited to US and Canada…is that right?

    Some of my children here are very concerned about whales, and other sea life (we are on the Sea of Cortez. I would like them to have a voice in some publication.

      We don’t organize this contest, so if you have questions you can click on the link and ask the people who run it. There’s a contest that is specifically about whales with a deadline at the end of the year. We’ll post that one for you in a few days. We try to share information about contests and publishing opportunities for kids on a regular basis, under the “contests” category. Thanks for checking in!
