Writing contest for grades 6-12 and the Jim Claypool Conservation art contest for grades 1-5, is themed “Where Kentucky’s Wild Things Are” for the annual Conservation Writing and Arts Contests sponsored by Kentucky Farm Bureau and the Kentucky Association of Conservation Districts.
Participants are tasked to share their ideas about the environment around them and efforts they can take to help preserve it, through short essays and artwork, persuading their readers and viewers to take action toward wildlife conservation efforts.
County-level winners receive a $25 award, regional winners get $50 and the state winners collect $250 for first place, $150 for second place and $50 for third place.
Entries must be received at the student’s local conservation district office by Dec. 1. To learn more about the contests and download resource materials – including a teacher’s guide, contest entry form and report forms – visit kyfb.com/federation or conservation.ky.gov.
