Youth Art Contest – 2012 Endangered Species Day

The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2012

The national Endangered Species Day Youth Art contest:

…provides young people with an opportunity to learn about endangered species and express their knowledge and support through artwork.

Endangered Species Day

Started in 2006 by the United States Congress, and renewed each year, Endangered Species Day (ESD) is a national recognition of the importance of animal and plant species worldwide and is an occasion to educate the public on how to protect endangered species.

It will be celebrated on May 18th.

With hindsight, 2012 will be seen as a good year, just as the 1990s, and before that the 1980s, and so on are now seen as good years because each year the situation gets worse.

Polluting, spoiling, and destroying habitat is a game that wins by stealth. Things get worse, but in the short run we don’t see the effects.

If you know someone who is in K-Grade 2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12 and you want to help educate them and for them to go on to educate others about endangered species, tell them about the art contest.
