Fish Art Contest International and Essay Winners Announced

White Bear Lake, MN – The wait is over! International art winners and essay winners for the 2022 Art of Conservation Fish Art Contest have been announced. Over 4,000 entries came from 43 countries and 42 US states.

Supported by Title Sponsor, Bass Pro Shops, students who participate choose a fish species then create both an artistic rendition and a creative writing submission for the contest. Essay winners are recognized in three age categories per state; 4th-6th grade, 7-9th grade, and 10th-12th grade. Students may submit a wide variety of creative writing pieces to qualify, such as poems, songs, stories, or fun fish interviews.

“I was very impressed with the artwork this year, but I love that students also have a chance to shine in the essay division of the contest. We believe that students synthesizing their knowledge into a creative writing piece is where the learning really happens!” said Addison Motta, Education and Communications Program Manager.
