MADISON -- June 2016 marks Wisconsin's 12th Annual Invasive Species Awareness Month. In celebration, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Wisconsin Invasive Species Council are hosting a video contest encouraging participants to show how they protect the places they play from invasive species.

The goal of the annual video contest is to increase awareness of invasive species and to teach people how to prevent their spread in these habitats.

Participants can submit their videos by visiting the "Invasive Species Video Contest" page. Videos should be less than two minutes. Additional contest rules and guidelines can be found on the entry form. Winning entries will be shown at the Invader Crusader Awards ceremony on June 9, 2016.

Video submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on May 30, 2016.
