Fish Art Contest Promotes Conservation

Fish Art Contest

The Fish Art Contest sparks the imaginations of students while providing valuable lessons about fish and the importance of conserving Texas' aquatic resources. Art, science, and creative writing foster a connection to the outdoors and inspire the next generation of stewards.

Contest is open to all youth in grades K-12. Participants must submit a completed entry form using the link below, an original illustration of a fish of your choice, and for grades 4-12, a one-page creative writing submission. This program is part of Wildlife Forever’s national contest, Texas state winners will be automatically entered into the national contest.

Make sure to use the Texas Entry Form. There are three options for submitting your Fish Art Contest entry: submit both art and entry form digitally, submit your entry form digitally and mail in art, or mail both entry form and artwork.
