2023 Grand Prize: Travel to Iceland with Lindblad Expeditions to to see and report on the environment

There is no story more gripping than that of our changing planet — and the solutions to sustain it. While problems ranging from climate justice to conservation, from rising sea levels to increasing heat waves, from the continuing pandemic to our plastic addiction, we’re looking for the stories surrounding the people, ideas, and innovations moving the world toward a greener future.

The Planet Forward Storyfest Awards highlight the voices of students, seeking to understand and illuminate their own innovations for how to best care for the earth. We are looking for stories that inspire, motivate, and drive change. Stories that are compelling, thought-provoking, and vibrantly stimulating. Be memorable, have an impact — and have fun.

The five grand-prize winners will travel with Lindblad Expeditions to Iceland on July 15-20, 2023, for an exciting opportunity to see and report on the environmental solutions, preventative measures, and innovations already being developed in the country.

Any story submitted on between Tuesday, June 1, 2022, 12:00 am EDT, and the deadline to submit stories, Monday, Feb 6, 2023 extended to |Mar 7, at 11:59 PM EST, is eligible for Storyfest 2023.
