How to share your Six Words for the Planet

By Stephanie Nicholson

Have you heard that the EPA has teamed up with SMITH Magazine?  SMITH magazine is becoming well- known for their Six Word Memoirs that encourage writers to share a unique story or idea in just six words. In this partnership, EPA and SMITH Magazine launched the project Six Words for the Planet.

You have to be at least 18 to submit entries on the competition’s website, so ask your parent or guardian if they can help you submit your words. I’d like to share my words with you:

 Bring back the majestic natural world  

As well as share with you EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson’s six words:

Healthier families, cleaner communities, stronger America.

Now it’s your turn. What are your Six Words for the Planet?
