Wildlife Forever is not accepting entries from young and aspiring artists for its “Art of Conservation Songbird Art Contest”. This art competition is completely free and open for students in k to 12 grades. This is Wildlife Forever’s new contest focused on sharing the wonder and species diversity of North American songbirds. Upon the massive success of its fish art contest, this organization has decided to launch another program that can help students bring their creative side out and gain experience. As a result of this, the Art of Conservation Songbird Art Contest has been introduced by Wildlife Forever. Through this program, students may learn about a North American Songbird Species and compete for prizes and international recognition.
Participants will have to submit an original piece of artwork accompanied by an essay detailing the unique characteristics of their chosen bird species and conservation needs. Applications for this program will close on November 30 of each year. Candidates can send their entries via email. The winners will be announced on National Bird Day, January 5th. Wildlife Forever believes that art can help people connect to nature and that connection may lead to transformation in policy and management, greatly benefitting wildlife species across the world. This organization also knows that raising awareness and educating people on how to preserve North America’s songbird species that are endangered will create stewardship and lasting benefits to people young and old, ensuring the future of conservation. And that is why they have started this contest which might be small but an effective way to influence people to save songbirds.
Wildlife Forever has been working toward its mission of conserving America’s wildlife heritage through conservation education, preservation of habitat, and management of fish and wildlife. It is a nonprofit conservation charity organization that funds conservation works in all 50 states and Canada with over 1,500 projects throughout North America.
