State-Fish Art

LEARNING AND CREATING THROUGH ART

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 nationwide contest is now running into its 20th year educating kids, teachers and parents on aquatic resources, conservation and each state’s State-Fish. And … the rest is history!
