White Bear Lake, MN – Wildlife Forever is excited to announce a new partnership with Rapala, the premier manufacturer of fishing lures and products. Supporting youth angling and conservation education, the Fish Art Contest is a free art and creative writing program open internationally for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Youth learn about fishing, water quality, and critical conservation issues.

“We are proud to support the Fish Art Contest, which connects students to the outdoors and promotes conservation minded behaviors. Protection of the environment is top of mind for the angling community, and it is of the utmost importance to instill these values in the next generation of stewards,” said Matt Jensen, Vice President of Marketing and Ecommerce at Rapala.

“We are grateful to Rapala for their support and the opportunity to work together on engaging students in conservation.
