Beginning this academic year the Young Naturalist Awards competition will not be continuing as a formal program at the American Museum of Natural History.

We want to thank the students and teachers who have participated during the 18 years of the competition, and we hope that many will continue to undertake science research projects.  We will continue to maintain and make publicly available an archive of the winning projects, guidelines on how to approach a research project, and additional educational resources.
