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.

Fish Migration Award

New for 2020 is the International Fish Migration Award,  created in partnership between Wildlife Forever and the World Fish Migration Foundation. Contestants may choose to apply in either the State-Fish Art Contest, the Fish Migration Award or Both. Art will be judged in two age categories, 5-11 years old and 12-18 years old. Winners will be celebrated on World Fish Migration Day on May 16th, 2020.
