Earn Money for Your School with #BeMinedUtah19 Contest


Press Release

How do minerals power your school? We’re giving $500 to two schools who share a fun, creative photo showing how minerals power their students, classrooms and schools.

The #BeMinedUtah2019 statewide photo challenge is open to all K-12 public school students, teachers principals, and administrators and runs Feb. 1 – 28.

The Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining, School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration, Utah Mining Association, and the Governor’s Office of Energy Development created a social media photo challenge to increase awareness about the importance of minerals in everyday life, specifically in Utah classrooms.

Entering is simple: Take and submit a photograph showing how mining powers your classroom, then post to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #BeMinedUtah19 or send it directly by email to oilgasmining@utah.gov

Judges from each participating agency will select their favorite photograph based on theme relevancy and creativity.

The top two schools with the best photos will each receive a check for $500 and will be encouraged to use their winnings on mineral-related activities.
