Credentialed teachers of kindergarten through 12th grade classes at Southern California schools are eligible for passes for one year of free admission to SeaWorld San Diego, the theme park announced today.
"Education is one of our core values at SeaWorld and more than 100,000 students pass through camp and field trip programs here every year," said John Reilly, president of the park. "We know how important a strong educational foundation is for our youth, and want to thank teachers for their devotion."
Teachers can go to the park's website to fill out a registration form and print a voucher that will be traded in for a pass card for unlimited admission to the park.
SeaWorld San Diego also announced a conservation-themed essay contest for third- and fourth-graders, with the entire class of the student with the winning essay receiving a field trip with behind-the-scenes looks at the park's rescue and turtle care facilities.
The contest runs March 15 through May 3.
