Have you been snorkeling in the ocean? Did you see a beautiful sunset? Maybe you hiked a mountain or went camping for the first time. Send us your essays of special encounters with nature, and we will post them to inspire other Planet Scouts. Please include your name, age, and hometown. There is no age limit. To preserve the privacy of children, we will only publish the first name of authors under the age of 18 (example: ~Fred, age 9, Knoxville, TN).Send submissions of 300 words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org.
