The Texas State-Fish Art Contest, headquartered at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens, reminds Texas teachers and students that the deadline for entries in the 2014 State-Fish Art Contest is Monday, March 31.

The contest is open to any student in public, private, or home schools in grades K-12. Students must draw or paint any recognized state fish and write an essay about it. Complete contest details and entry forms can be found at

First place in grades 10-12 wins $1,000; second place, $750; and third place, $500. Prizes in the K-3, 4-6, and 7-9 grade levels are $100 for first, $75 for second, and $50 for third. Student art from the Texas contest is featured on Toyota Texas Bass Classic tickets. The next Classic will take place on Lake Fork in May 2014.

Wildlife Forever chooses one outstanding piece of artwork each year 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.

Educators who wish to have their students enter the contest can download the free “State-Fish Art Contest Lesson Plan” at The interdisciplinary curriculum includes lessons and activities, a species identification section profiling each state fish, a glossary, and student worksheets.
