Current Projects

You and your students are invited to participate in any of the following projects:

Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest Elementary, middle and high school teachers and their students are encouraged to participate in the Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest, an integral part of the 12th annual Endangered Species Day, celebrated on and around May 19, 2017. Started in 2006 by the United States Congress, Endangered Species Day is a celebration of the nation's wildlife and wild places. The Youth Art Contest provides K-12 students with an opportunity to learn about endangered species and express their knowledge and support through artwork. Young artists who are home schooled and participate in youth groups are also eligible to submit their art. More than 1,500 young artists from throughout the country entered this year's contest. Entries to the Saving Endangered Species contest must be submitted electronically by March 1, 2017. A prestigious panel of artists, photographers and conservationists will judge the artwork. Winners will be chosen in four categories: K-Grade 2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8 and Grades 9-12, and will receive plaques and art supply gift packs. In addition, one grand prize winner will be honored at a reception in Washington, D.C. in May 2017 and also receive a special art lesson from a professional artist. The Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest is organized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Endangered Species Coalition, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the International Child Art Foundation. Visit for more information, including complete contest guidelines, entry submission details, an art lesson plan and the 2016 contest semi-finalists' artwork.
