Save the Earth Comic Contest

Our goal was to increase the exposure of the many issues passionate youth in Cameroon care about and face every day, giving them a better chance to voice their concerns and bring attention to these problems. Primarily, we wanted to develop students’ abilities to convey a message in an engaging way. To do this, we asked student groups to team up with their peers to create comics which highlighted an important environmental issue and told a story about how everyday people could work to help fix it. Many groups entered the contest, and we have displayed the 4 winning entries for you here. A final congratulations to the winners of the Save the Earth Comic Contest!
