Calling all young artists! Test your artistic skills and compete for $7,000 in cash this fall

2013 NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest Honorable Mention recipient Ashley Park

Fairfax, Virginia - With summer break winding to a close and a new year of school beginning for much of America, it's important to remember that school is not all reading, writing, and arithmetic. If you're an aspiring artist and would like to practice your techniques, build your portfolio, or just earn a little spending money, the George Montgomery/NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest is for you. We're giving away $7,000 in cash prizes to talented artists in grades one to twelve.

Interested? Artwork may be of any North American game bird or game animal that can be legally hunted or trapped in the United States or Canada. You can use any 2D medium you choose, so break out the pens, pencils, charcoal, pastels, paint, or whatever you like. The composition of your entry must be original, but photos can be used for reference.
