The Endangered Species Coalition is again holding its annual youth art contest. Artwork must be submitted electronically by March 1. The Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest is an integral part of the annual Endangered Species Day, celebrated the third Friday of May each year.
Entries should depict a land or ocean-dwelling species that either lives in or migrates through the United States and its waters and has been placed on the threatened–endangered species list.
A prestigious panel of artists, photographers, and conservationists will judge the artwork. Winners will be chosen in four categories: K-Grade 2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12, and will receive plaques and art supply gift packs. One grand prize winner will be honored at a reception in Washington, D.C., in May and also receive a special art lesson.
