2018 Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest
If you know young artists who make art about endangered plants and wildlife, they may wish to submit pieces to the 2018 Endangered Species Day Youth Art Contest. Entries are due March 1. The contest is an integral part of the 13th annual Endangered Species Day on May 18, 2018. Details and links below. From our partners at the Endangered Species Coalition:
Engaging youth in creating art depicting endangered species allows them to research the issues that threaten that species and create art depicting it. And, they could win a trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with their congressional delegation!
