The Student Conservation Association and Mazda North American Operations, have partnered to drive youth conservation efforts through a multimedia contest with a Grand Prize of a MAZDA3 and $10,000.

The SCA/Mazda Conservation in Action Contest is a cornerstone of SCA's 50th anniversary celebration. It challenges young people to develop action-oriented environmental solutions and pays tribute to SCA founder Elizabeth Cushman Titus Putnam, who first proposed a “Student Conservation Corps” in her senior thesis in the mid-1950s.

“ The SCA/Mazda Conservation in Action Contest will not only mark SCA’s first 50 years but expand our mark on the next 50,” said SCA President Dale Penny. “More than most, SCA recognizes that young people are powerful agents of change and we look forward to evaluating their fresh ideas and putting the best of them into action.”

Contestants will compete in two divisions. Individuals aged 20-25 are eligible to win a 2008 MAZDA3 and $10,000 cash; $15,000 will go to the top entrant in the 15-19 category, and six regional winners will receive $2,000 prizes. All winners will also attend SCA’s EarthVision: Actions for a Healthy Planet, a landmark youth in conservation summit to be held next April in Washington, D.C.

“ Mazda has sponsored SCA for the past 10 years, annually underwriting the placement of conservation interns in all 50 states,” said Jay Amestoy, vice president of public and government affairs for Mazda NAO and a contest judge. “The SCA/Mazda Conservation in Action Contest will spur new thinking, new dialogue, and most importantly new practices to help protect our environment.”

The contest deadline is December 1, 2007. Entries may be submitted in all media formats including written word, PowerPoint, and video. Mazda will promote the contest at 600 showrooms nationwide
