In an effort to spread the word to nursing students of the important role nurses can and do play in advocating for environmental health, the Nurses Work Group of Health Care Without Harm and the Luminary Project are holding a nursing student essay contest. Open to all undergraduate nursing students in the United States or Canada, participants are asked to write an essay discussing the nurse's role as an environmental health activist and an advocate for clean water, air or food.

Students interested in participating in the contest should submit their entries electronically at cfunkhouser@hcwh.org by 5 P.M. (EST) Eastern Standard time on December 14, 2007. All entries should include a cover letter listing the nursing student’s name, phone number, nursing school in which enrolled, expected date of graduation, and contact info for one nursing school professor or advisor to verify student status.
