Georgia Division of Wildlife Forever’s 2017 National State-Fish Art Contestby SKA on 09/10/17
We are very pleased to announce that many of SKA students’ artwork and essays were selected in the Georgia Division of Wildlife Forever’s 2017 National State-Fish Art Contest. In addition to creating a lively illustration of the State Fish of their choice, each student submitted an essay entry which conveyed their own knowledge and connection with the state fish. The Georgia state winners are as follows:
? First Place in the 7th – 9th grade category: Selina Li, 7th Grade.
? Second Place in the 7th – 9th grade category: George Song, 8th Grade.
? Second Place in the 4th – 6th grade category: Sophia Cheng, 6th Grade.
? Third Place in the K-3rd grade category: Colleen Cao, 3rd Grade.
? Honorable Mention, “Go Fish Favorite Award” in the Georgia Division: Lauren Lin, 10th grade.
Selina Li received a Walmart gift card, a certificate with an 11”x 14” plaque and free admission to the Go Fish Education Center. George, Sophia and Colleen each received a certificate with an 11”x14” plaque and free admission to the Go Fish Education Center.
A scanned copy of these artists work will be on display at the Go Fish Education Center for one year beginning June 1st.
This competition was a great way for students to learn about the different state fish, their behavior, characteristics, their natural habitat and conservation needs.
Congratulations to Selina, George, Sophia, Colleen and Lauren!
