Student Art Contest Awards Ceremony this Friday at the Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center, Little Rock. Time and Date: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 3, 2019
The Arkansas Wildlife Federation and Creative Ideas, a Little Rock-based nonprofit organization, hosts the art contest each year to help promote conservation awareness through the arts.
A panel of professional artists will select 4 winners in each grade level based on creativity, skill and interpretation of the theme. All artwork must be focused on wildlife and the natural world, however, it is not limited to animals. Wildflowers, landscapes and other natural features may be the focus of the piece. A special category will focus on monarch butterflies and other pollinatinator species to help bring awareness to their declines.
Winning entries will earn the artist a cash prize as well as a certificate of achievement at the AWF Annual Conservation Awards Banquet. All winning artwork also will be displayed at Arkansas Game and Fish Commission nature centers across the state throughout the year.
