Highland Center and Wildlife Education Fund Announce Third Annual Student Art Competition

0
The Vermont Wildlife Education Fund and the Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro, Vermont have announced the Third Annual Student Wildlife Art Competition. Known as the “Give Wildlife a Voice” art competition, the competition is open to all Vermont students from grades seven through twelve. The exhibition is sponsored by The Churchill Family Charitable Fund, the Vermont Wildlife Coalition, The Vermont Wildlife Education Fund, and the Highland Center for the Arts.

This year’s theme is “Winged Wonders” presented in memory of Lee C. Churchill. Winged wildlife need not be the focus, but something with wings must be included. The competition seeks to help young Vermonters become more aware of the beauty of the wildlife here in Vermont. There are cash prizes for the top 18 entrants, beginning with a $750.00 award for first place.   

The entry deadline is March 15. Top honorees will be exhibited at the Highland Center for the Arts from Saturday, April 27 to Saturday, May 4. The top ten honorees will then be exhibited at the Vermont Statehouse. Vermont Congresswoman Becca Balint has invited the top honorees to be exhibited in the United States House of Representatives.
