Calling all young artists!
Children and teens living in Macon County are invited to participate in a county-wide Wildlife Art Contest this winter.
Students in grades K-12 are encouraged to create and submit one original work of two dimensional art in the medium of their choice (excluding photography) depicting native Illinois plant or animal wildlife in their natural habitat. Creativity is highly encouraged.
Entries will be divided into four categories, based on grade level: K-3, 4-6, 7-8, and 9-12. Macon County Conservation District staff will carefully consider all entries and choose a first, second, and third place winner in each age group. Winners will have their art displayed in Rock Springs Nature Center from February through May 2019 in an upcoming exhibit, Nature through Art, alongside other local artists.
Entries are due by Friday, January 25, 2019.
Submitted art must include: the artist’s name, age, grade, school (or homeschool), and a phone number where the artist’s parent or guardian can be reached, so we can properly credit the artist and inform those who win the contest.
To submit your entry, mail or deliver it to:
Rock Springs Nature Center
