Well, there is a little work involved. I would think it would be worth a try, though. Besides, students are going to learn tons just thinking through the process. It is being sponsored by National Geographic and combines literacy skills, photography, and a lot of thinking about their environment. Take a look:
Write an original personal essay in English, that is no more than 300 words telling us how you actively explore your world and the most interesting things you have found in it (“Essay”). Then take a photograph of what, where, or how you explore the subject of your essay (the “Photograph”). You must be the photographer. The Essay and the Photograph must each be a single work of original material created by the contest entrant. By entering the Contest, entrant represents, acknowledges and warrants that the submitted Essay and Photograph are original works created solely by the entrant and that no other party has any right, title, claim or interest in the Essay or the Photograph.
