Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest

Use your art skills to celebrate endangered species!

The Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest encourages young artists from schools, home schools, and youth art activity programs to take up their pens, pencils, brushes, or scissors to celebrate endangered species through art. The Art Contest is part of the national Endangered Species Day celebration and encourages students to learn more about endangered species and what they can do to protect them. Entries are due by March 15, 2014. Full contest rules are posted at Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest.

Help others look beneath the waves, choose a marine species for your Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest entry! Use NOAA Fisheries' species pages to learn about the different marine animals we protect, like salmon, coral, sturgeon, sea turtles, and whales. Visit our Protected Resources website and dive in!

Be sure to celebrate Endangered Species Day on May 16, 2014. Visit Endangered Species Day.org to find events in your area throughout the year, or post your own event for others to join.
