Does your child love art and animals? Then why not submit his latest masterpiece to the Endangered Species Day Youth Art Contest? The grand prize is a trip to D.C. to celebrate Endangered Species Day, an art lesson with Wyland (!), and $50 worth of new art supplies.
The Endangered Species Day Youth Art contest is an annual event sponsored by the U.S.. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS,) the Endangered Species Coalition, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the International Child Art Foundation.
Started in 2006, Endangered Species Day is a celebration of the nation’s rarest plant and animal species.
