2017 State-Fish Art Contest announces winners

WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. — Wildlife Forever has announced the winners of the 2017 State-Fish Art Contest.

A panel of five honorary judges selected national award-winners from the first-place finishers of individual states. Judges included Trisha Blake, FLW Outdoors; Amy McGovern, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service; Suzi Hudson, White Bear Center for the Arts; Terry Clayton, Triarce Arts & Crafts; and Benjamin McAninch, director, Wildlife Forever. Outdoor News partners with Wildlife Forever on the Clean, Drain, Dry campaign.

For two decades, the Wildlife Forever State-Fish Art Contest has brought children, adults and aquatic conservation together through the arts. To enter, young artists create an original art illustration of any official state fish and a one-page written effort detailing its behavior, habitat, and efforts to conserve it.
