Forest Service fishing for student art of fish in Alaska
The Forest Service and Wildlife Forever, a conservation nonprofit, have jointly announced the 2020 deadline for the Alaska Fish Art competition.
Students K-12 are eligible to compete for both Alaska and national prizes. Entrants can draw any state fish, listed on the competition website, along with more rules. Entrants will also be required to turn in a one-page essay about the fish they’ve drawn, in addition to the 9×12 drawing of the fish.
Students who choose to illustrate Alaska’s state fish — the chinook or king salmon — will also be eligible to win the Alaska Fish Heritage Award.
The competition is intended to raise awareness of fishing and marine conservation, the press release says. Entries are group in grades K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12.
Entrants should submit their submissions to the following address no later than March 31:
USDA Forest Service
