The Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center( TFFC) is pleased to announce that submissions are now being accepted for the Wildlife Forever Fish Art Contest’s 2024 Texas department. An international protection training program intended to inspire young people’s interest in fishing and hunting includes the Fish Art Contest, which is accepting submissions through February 28.
According to TFFC Director Tom Lang,” The Fish Art Contest does a fantastic job of exposing kids across Texas to the wonders of fish and fishing tools through the connection of art.” ” We often look forward to this time of year when we are once more in awe of these young Texans’ outstanding work and creative meanings.”
A finished entry form and an unique Texas exotic fish illustration are required of participants. Students in grades 4 through 12 must also send a one-page creative writing part. Candidates must send their drawings to the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center at 5550 Radio 2495 in Athens, Texas, 75752 after submitting the entrance form. Sizes for the real artwork must be between 8X10″ and 9X12″, be landscape-oriented, and be postmarked by February 28, 2024.
Texas winners will automatically be entered into Wildlife Forever’s national competition, which includes this software. Texas learners may choose to enter federal specialist awards with fish that are not found in Texas, but due to the one access per pupil cap, they will not be qualified for Texas state awards.
According to Kate Barkalow, TFFC’s Education and Interpretation Coordinator,” we have a special opportunity to enjoy the skills of our Texas students and the beauty of the different fish found in Texas.” We acknowledge the incredible work of our teachers and researchers who support them in doing so. Students establish a connection between the student and the fish in order to complete their work of art by researching their seafood, its wildlife, and conservation efforts to preserve the species.
Online access types, rules, guidelines, and other resources are available for teachers who want to encourage their students to participate in the 2024 competition. A dictionary, student worksheets, a species identification section that profiles each state fish, and lessons and activities are all included in an integrative curriculum. Visit web to learn more.
