Contest! You know that turtle you’ve always wanted to draw?

I’m re-posting this so that it stands out on its own.  The Department of Environmental Protection in Connecticut is having an art contest for kids!  You don’t even have to live in Connecticut to enter the contest!

All children from kindergarten through fifth grade are eligible to enter an original drawing, painting, or sketch of a turtle native to Connecticut.

  • Entries will be judged in three categories: K-1st grade, 2nd-3rd grade, and 4th-5th grade.
  • Prizes will be awarded in each category for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and honorable mention.
  • All entries will be displayed at the Sessions Woods Conservation Education Center, in Burlington, for Year of the Turtle Day, scheduled for June 26, 2011, from 1:00-4:00 PM.
  • Full details and entry information are available on the official entry form (PDF) or by calling the Wildlife Division at 860-675-8130 (Mon-Fri, 8:30 AM-4:30 PM).
