Picture This, Caption That! Contest

Kids with phone

Let’s Celebrate Earth Day with our Picture This, Caption That! Contest.


New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) is proud to announce the 2021 Conserve to Preserve® (CTP) Kids and Conservation Picture This, Caption That! Contest winners. In celebration of Earth Day, NJNG asked students and their teachers to test their photography skills by showing conservation or energy-saving tips through an original photo and creatively captioning it! All students, grades sixth to eighth, and schools within NJNG’s service territory were encouraged to enter.

Every submission clearly displayed a dedication to conservation. These future energy conservation leaders uphold our belief in responsible energy use and the value of sharing effective and accurate energy-saving tips. Even amid a pandemic, and with many students and teachers still working remotely, these student/teacher teams have submitted original and imaginative projects.

All participants have received a certificate of recognition, which has been provided to their teachers. The contest was judged based on the following criteria: (a) content, (b) accuracy, (c) creativity, and (d) overall presentation.

And the winners for the Picture This, Caption That 2021 Contest are (in no particular order):

  •  Ryder S. and Ms. Pape, from Red Bank Middle School.
  •  Erin N. and Ms. Andreazza, from Valleyview Middle School.
  •  Taylor C. and Ms. Porter, from Woodrow Wilson School.

Each winner of the 2021 Conserve to Preserve® (CTP) Kids and Conservation “Picture This, Caption That!” Contest will receive the following:

  • Each student winner will receive $500.
  • The participating school will receive $1,000 contribution towards an energy conservation or environmental project.
