Are you doing something to help save endangered wild horses? If the answer is "yes" make sure you have someone take photos of your efforts and write to Terri documenting the impact your presentation made. Click here for how you can make an impact.
Winners will document their impact on the problem with photos and short, written
explanations. There is no deadline. Send the information to email@example.com.
If you're considered for a place on one of Terri's Web sites, you may receive a
request for a signed note from an adult saying they're familiar with your work.
Your impact could be a letter writing campaign by your classmates, church youth group, 4-H chapter, or other gathering to your congressmen and senators. It could be handing out factual leaflets in a public place, persuading a local librarian to display your fact-filled and attractive posters or something else totally creative which you thought up.
- Use facts and state them simply so that everyone understands.
- Feel free to use any information from my Web site. Checking the
NEWS is a good place to start. Check with your librarian or teacher or Terri for other ideas.
- Effect as many of your audience's senses as possible. Here are a few suggestions, but your creativity will offer more exciting ideas.
You talk, they listen, then invite a knowledgeable guest speaker to play audio of running
horses, frightened horses, play songs about wild horses; Try WILD HORSE CROSSING
Search for graphics about wild horses, horse slaughter at your library or online. Use movies
about wild horses. Terri brings her movie, THE WILD ONES when she comes to speak or you
could check out Cloud or Spirit
You could also make a tabletop model of the range with figures of wild
life, cattle, sheep, and humans, showing how each uses the land

Be sure to check out the Winter Warriors page!
Pass photos, books, horse models or a diorama which can be handled
around and have your audience color a horse handout you've designed
It's also a great time to write letters or postcards to legislators
- Smell & Taste
A little tricky but you could get a sample of sagebrush for
your audience to smell and perhaps find a horse-shaped cookie cutter and
serve the only kind of horses a caring human should eat!
Most of all, give your audience something to talk about after your
presentation ends and make it easy for them to take action, even if you have
to put all their letters into an envelope together and stick on the stamps
