Kid Art: Endangered Species Awareness

Paper Crafts

Each year since 2006, thousands of children across the United States submit artwork representing a plethora of endangered plants and wildlife living in our fair country. The submissions are amazing, the cause is attention-worthy, and the contest culminates in national Endangered Species Day, which this year falls on tomorrow, Friday, May 21.

The contest gives students (grades K-12) the chance to learn about and promote the conservation of endangered species through art. And it gives us some lovely eye candy with a message.
