Texas Parks and Wildlife invites student art entries
Student artists across Texas in grades k-12 take notice: It’s time to start preparing your entries for the 2013 Wildlife Forever State-Fish Art Contest. The contest is open to all students in public, private, or home schools. The entry deadline is Sunday, March 31.
The Texas first-place winner in grades 10-12 wins $1,000; second place, $750; and third place, $500. Prizes in the 4-6 and 7-9 grade levels are $100 for first; $75 for second; and $50 for third.
One outstanding piece of artwork will be selected for the Art of Conservation Award, and a commemorative stamp featuring the artwork is produced for sale. Proceeds from sales of the stamp are used to fund conservation projects.
Contest rules, guidelines, entry information, and details can be found at www.tpwd.state.tx.us/fishart.
Educators who wish to have their students enter the contest can download the free “State-Fish Art Contest Lesson Plan” at www.statefishart.com.
