FWC to host Florida State Fish Art Contest – FWC

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in partnership with Wildlife Forever, is excited to announce the 25th Anniversary Fish Art Contest is now open. Since 1997, the contest has grown into an internationally recognized youth conservation program, drawing thousands of entries each year from across the country.
The FWC will host the Florida State Fish Art Contest again this year for the state. Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade can compete in this free contest for a chance to win state and national honors and prizes. This program inspires creativity while developing the next generation of anglers and conservationists.
“Fish Art started as an idea to celebrate the state fish of Minnesota, the walleye. Today, students from all over the world participate to learn about fish, water resources and conservation. We continue to see lives changed where participation in the Fish Art contest serves as building blocks for lifelong stewardship of natural resources,” said Pat Conzemius, President and CEO of Wildlife Forever.
One first place winner and one runner up will be selected for each grade bracket (kindergarten through third grade, fourth through sixth grade, seventh through ninth grade and tenth through twelfth grade), one for illustrating the best freshwater fish species and one for the best saltwater fish species. All first-place winners will advance to the National Competition to be judged for top prizes, such as the Best of Show. The deadline to enter is Feb. 28, 2023, so start designing today!
To enter, students from Florida should submit their entry at Wildlife Forever – Florida Art, consisting of the following:
