ST. PAUL — There's still time to enter the Minnesota Fish Art Contest for a chance to win state and national honors.

The Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine, in partnership with White Bear Lake-based nonprofit Wildlife Forever, is hosting this year's competition, which is open to all Minnesota students in grades K-12.

The 2023 Minnesota Fish Art Contest is accepting digital entries only, consisting of two parts:

  • An original hand-done horizontal illustration featuring a fish species of your choice. Any medium except digitally rendered art and photographs is accepted.
  • A personally written essay about your chosen fish species (for those students in grades 4-12. Essays are not required for K-3 students)

Entries must be submitted by Feb. 28. Winners will be announced in May. Prizes will be awarded.
Using art, science and creative writing, the competition aims to foster connections to the outdoors and introduce young people to the wonders of fish, the joy of fishing and the importance of aquatic conservation.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
