2013 marks the 23rd year that The State Botanical Garden of Georgia has co-sponsored this contest with the Nongame Conservation Section of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The contest provides an excellent means for teachers to introduce some of Georgia's endangered plants and animals and reasons for their population decline, to their students. Any student in grades K-5 enrolled in a public, private or home school is eligible to participate.
Artwork must portray Georgia nongame (not legally hunted, trapped or fished) wildlife and plants. The entries are judged at the local school level in four divisions (Kindergarten, First & Second grades, Third & Fourth grades, and Fifth grade).
Winning entries in local contests are then to be mailed to the Botanical Garden for entry in the state level competition. Entries must be received by Friday, March 27, 2013 for inclusion in the state level judging. For rules and specific guidelines for the 2013 poster contest.
