Hello Deborah,****

I was wondering if you would be willing to help spread the world to
Mississippi science teachers about the “World of 7 Billion” video contest
that is going on this school year. The contest is hosted by the Education
Program at Population Connection, a Washington, DC based non-profit focused
on educating today’s youth about our growing human population. If possible,
it would be great to have a blurb included in your next science association
newsletter, posted on your website, sent out on your ListServ, or included
in any other teacher outreach.****

The contest is open to all high school students worldwide and the deadline
for submission is February 21st, 2014. We’re hoping that by giving teaching
so much lead time they’ll be able to incorporate the contest into their

I’ve pasted a short blurb below, in case you are open to sharing this
information. Feel free to edit it as you see fit, or let me know if you’d
like me to provide a different length or twist. ****

Thank you for your help!****
