PERRY, Ga. (Oct. 29, 2019) – Be sure to encourage your young artist(s) to enter the 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 to start creating!
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.
There are a few new award categories for the 2020 contest, including the Fish Migration Award and the Guy Harvey Award. Contestants may choose to apply in just the State-Fish Art Contest or in any of the additional award categories or both. More info about award categories found at https://www.wildlifeforever.org/home/state-fish-art/award-categories/.
To enter, young artists create an original illustration of their chosen fish from the official State-Fish List. Please note, if entering any of the additional award categories, be sure your entry meets all necessary requirements.
All Georgia contestants must complete the Georgia-specific entry form and those entries are due postmarked by March 31, 2020 to Marion Baker/Go Fish Education Center (1255 Perry Parkway, Perry, GA 31069).
