FWC Hosts Youth Fish Art Contest

FWC to host Florida State-Fish Art Contest

Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade can compete in this free contest for a chance to win state and national honours, and prizes.


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in partnership with Wildlife Forever, is eager to announce they will host the Florida State-Fish Art Contest. Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade can compete in this free contest for a chance to win state and national honors, and prizes. This program inspires creativity while developing the next generation of anglers and conservationists.

Florida winners will be selected by the FWC in four grade categories, kindergarten through third grade, fourth through sixth grade, seventh through ninth grade and tenth through twelfth grade. State winners will advance to the National Competition to be judged for top prizes such as the Best of Show. The deadline to enter is March 31, 2021, so start designing today!

“We are committed to increasing youth participation in freshwater and saltwater fishing through this effort,” said Eric Sutton, Director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “The State-Fish Art program is a unique and creative way to connect to youth anglers and the FWC is proud to be sponsoring the initiative for Florida.”

To enter, students from Florida should submit their entry consisting of the following:



  • An original horizontal 9”x12” piece of artwork featuring any fish from the Official Fish List.


  • A piece of creative writing, no longer than one page, about the chosen species (required for grades 4-12).


  • A Florida State-Fish Art Contest entry form.




Participants may choose to mail their entry to:
