State-Fish Art

The ART of Conservation

The contest was inspired in 1997 by a 5th grader’s homework assignment,  She discovered there was little information on all the different state-fish in the U.S. The annual international contest has been around for over 20 years educating kids, teachers and parents on aquatic resources, conservation and fish. Participate today and incorporate STEAM education into your learning.
