Young GA Artists Receive Honors at 2024 Fish Art Contest


The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is proud to announce the Georgia winners of the Fish Art Contest. The Wildlife Forever Fish Art Contest, which includes the Georgia Fish Art Contest, is an international competition designed to ignite children’s imagination and inspire them to discover more about fish and fishing. The program is free to enter and open to youth in kindergarten through grade 12 anywhere in the world. 

"The Fish Art Contest is a wonderful way to connect young people with our incredible natural resources in Georgia,” said Chrystal Sherwood, Georgia State-Fish Art Coordinator. “I am so thankful to the dedicated teachers and parents who encouraged their students to enter this contest because by researching and creating these art pieces, students are doing more than just drawing or painting. They are learning about specific species and their habitats and the importance of these resources to everyone.”
