Endangered species art competition

The Endangered Species Act recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, and now students are asked to celebrate Endangered Species Day.

Across America, students in kindergarten through grade 12 are invited to put their creativity to work in the 2014 Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest. The deadline for submissions is March 15.

Forty semifinalists will be selected, and a panel of artists and conservationists will choose winners. Endangered Species Day is May 16.
