PERRY, Ga. -(Ammoland.com)- Be sure to encourage your young artist(s) to enter the 18th annual Wildlife Forever State-Fish Art contest. This contest is open to kids in Grades K-12 but the deadline for entries is March 31st – so, don’t wait too long!
Students across the United States and internationally have the opportunity to win prizes and recognition while learning about state-fish species, behaviors, aquatic habitats, and conservation. Using art, the State-Fish Art Contest ignites children’s imagination while teaching them about fish and fishing.
To enter, young artists create an original illustration of their chosen fish from the official State-Fish List. A personal one-page written essay, story or poem based on its behavior, habitat and/or conservation needs is also required and awarded (not required for participants in K-3rd grade).
Winning contestants from each state, plus Ontario, Canada and international entries, will be honored in four grade categories, K-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12.
All Georgia contestants must complete the Georgia-specific entry form and are due postmarked by March 31, 2017 to Marion Baker/Go Fish Education Center (1255 Perry Parkway, Perry, GA 31069).
