Youth Art Contest: Endangered Species January 27, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography.

2010 Grand Prize: Polar Bear & Beluga Whale, Carter Schroeder, Anchorage, AK

Endangered Species Day, started by the US Congress in 2006, celebrates our nation’s imperiled wildlife, plants, and wild spaces.

The event features a Youth Art Contest, organized by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service,  Endangered Species Coalition, Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and Ogden Museum of Southern Art/ University of New Orleans.

Teachers can include the Endangered Species Day Youth Art Contest as a featured activity for Youth Art Month in March. 

Entries are due March 15.

My daughter has done this before. It’s a great event. Thanks for the reminder!

Such a wonderful way to introduce budding artists to the beautiful world we inhabit.

I wish I was a “wee one” so I could enter! 🙂

Me too! I love the winning drawing from last year ~ polar bears and Belugas.

This is a good idea.
Great for raising awereness about the many animals who are at risk of extinction

Thanks, Artswebshow.

It’s too late for some, but maybe we can save the rest.

I’m forwarding the link to a couple of teachers at our school who I know will have their students participate. Thanks for sharing. If I were still teaching I’d have my students participate in the contest and the Endangered Species Day events.

Excellent! It’s such a fun way to get kids involved with environmental issues and art.

Isn’t it? I love the winning artwork ~ a very simple reminder of the complex web of life.
