Give Wildlife a Chance Poster Contest

Whether it is in the schoolyard or the backyard, students can use their senses to explore the outdoors and discover "The Sights and Sounds of Wild Georgia!" Kindergarten through 5th-grade students are invited to participate in the 18th annual Give Wildlife a Chance Poster Contest by entering artwork that depicts Georgia's nongame wildlife and native plants. What do you hear, smell and see in your area? What do the trees and soil feel like? Artwork may reflect the melodies of birds and insects, or the chirps of frogs and hoots of owls at a nearby pond. Did any of the plants make a cool sound?  Turn these sights and sounds into artwork and enter the chance to showcase your talents in the 2008 Give Wildlife a Chance Poster Contest calendar! Deadline for entries is March 10.
