SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency has revised its environmental education programs for virtual use because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The theme of this year’s Poster, Poetry, and Prose Contest is “Fight Food Waste: Our Environment Can’t be Replaced!” It focuses on diversions to food waste which are easier on the environment, including climate change. Teachers and parents may also consider “Dive In! 2020.”

It is the annual event, restructured with pre-recorded presentations to be used virtually, which takes viewers throughout the state and discusses the protection of natural resources.
