Georgia Fish Art

The Go Fish Education Center is home to the Georgia Fish Art Contest.

Got a young artist residing in your home? Be sure to encourage them to enter Wildlife Forever’s annual Fish Art contest. This contest is open to kids in Grades K–12, but the deadline for entries is February 28—and you have to enter to win!

Students across the United States and internationally have the opportunity to win prizes and recognition while learning about fish species, behaviors, aquatic habitats, and conservation. Using art, this contest ignites children’s imagination while teaching them about fish and fishing.

The Fish Art Contest offers many different award categories to recognize our contestants’ unique talents and to focus on important conservation topics and issues. To enter, young artists create an original illustration of their chosen fish species from the Official Fish List. An essay, story or poem based on species behavior, habitat and/or conservation needs is also awarded.
