Highlights from the Storyfest 2019 Awards, sponsored by Lindblad Expeditions.

There is no story more gripping than that of our changing planet – and the solutions to sustain it.

While problems from a rapidly warming climate to our single-use culture abound, Planet Forward seeks the stories that surround the people, ideas, and innovations making the world greener for today and tomorrow.

The Planet Forward Storyfest Awards recognize and reward the best and most compelling student-told stories illuminating environmental issues and solutions, told during the 2019-2020 school year.


Six grand-prize winners will win an expedition with our generous sponsor, Lindblad Expeditions, to travel on an educational voyage to Iceland this summer, and will discover the effects of climate change as they uniquely appear just south of the Arctic Circle.

Award categories are Best-Written Article, Best Video, Best Short or Sharable Video, Best Multimedia Story, Best Photo Essay, and the Fan Favorite Award.


All Storyfest entries are judged by a panel of environmental communicators not affiliated with Planet Forward.

The 2020 Storyfest Award winners are announced on Friday, April 3.
