Want to help protect bald eagles? You can! Just enter the Eagles Forever! Story and Art Contest by April 30, 2006 and you and three friends could win a trip to Washington, DC!

Eagles Forever! - American Eagle (No, Not the Store)

The bald eagle is America's national bird. It represents freedom cuz it has the freedom to fly anywhere and everywhere it wants - but you won't find bald eagles anywhere else in the world except North America. The bald eagle almost became extinct because of the deadly pesticide DDT, which caused eggshell thinning. But thanks to the Endangered Species Act, bald eagles have been protected since 1973. Though the bald eagle has fought back from near-extinction, new legislation is now threatening to "delist" the bald eagle (removing it from the national endangered species list).

Eagles Forever! - A Smart Symbol for America

You may remember Amy Smart from movies like Just Friends, Starsky & Hutch and The Butterfly Effect with Ashton Kutcher, but the role that she loves most is standing up for America's environment and wildlife. She's a board member of Heal the Bay and the Environmental Media Association, and volunteers with her mom to help protect endangered animals. She's now involved in the Eagles Forever! contest as one of the judges, and she can't wait to see your art and story submissions!

Eagles Forever! - Contest Details

Show America that you care about bald eagles by entering the Eagles Forever! Story and Art Contest. All you have to do is submit a 500-word story and artwork that answers the question, "The bald eagle is back! Why is that important to America?" The winner will travel to Washington, DC with three friends or family members, and runners-up will receive a $200 gift certificate to Amazon.com and a one-year subscription to National Geographic Kids magazine. It doesn't matter how old you are, but you do have to be a US citizen. Remember, the deadline to enter the contest is Friday, April 30, 2006. Visit the official website of Eagles Forever to get more info!

    Well, in my opinion (depending on your age) dating is pointless until it'll actually make a difference in your life! but your parents know best, just try to see the bright side in what they're saying.

    Well, may I share my story? I had the same problem too, until the day when me and my crush were finally together. I dared myself to tell my parents and they said "It's alright, it's up to you." 0.0 (I didn't tell you to use my way to date him ._.)
