south dakota kids get published!

We're building South Dakota Conservation Digest: Kids Edition 2014... and we need your help!

We want YOUR magazine to feature YOUR thoughts on South Dakota outdoors, YOUR writing and even YOUR pictures.

Here's how you can get involved and get published

  1. Take our survey and make your voice heard
  2. Submit your writing: We are accepting creative fiction stories, true stories, and poetry submissions about the South Dakota outdoors from kids 16 and younger. Stories may be 300-500 words, poetry may be up to 30 lines. All entries must be typed.
    E-Mail entries to TOC@state.sd.us (Subject line "Nature Writing") or mail them to 4500 S. Oxbow Ave., Sioux Falls, SD 57106 (ATTN: Nature Writing).
    Include your
    - name
    - age
    - phone number
    - grade, and
    - school name.
  3. Submit your photography: Send us pictures you've taken of nature or pictures of yourself in nature for a chance to appear in the magazine.
    Pictures can be sent the same way as Nature Writing submissions.
