Caring for the Kenai semifinalists' entries will be on display Saturday at Gottschalks in the Peninsula Center Mall. KSRM Radio will provide live radio broadcasts throughout the day, featuring interviews with students and teachers participating in the annual contest.
Final oral presentations will be given at 6 p.m. April 23 in the Kenai High School Little Theater, followed by the presentation of final awards.
More than 300 students participated in this year's Caring for the Kenai contest, in which they asked themselves, "What can I do, invent or create to better care for the environment on the Kenai Peninsula or to improve the area's preparedness for a natural disaster?"
The program, sponsored by Unocal Alaska and Agrium Kenai Nitrogen Products, offers cash awards to the best 12 proposals, as well as $500 to schools assigning the project. Additional grants are given to participating schools based on where the school's students place in the final oral presentaiton competition.
