Young artists compete for $7,000 in prizes this fall in NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest
Fairfax, Virginia - The entries for this year's George Montgomery/NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest just keep rolling in now that the deadline is a couple weeks away. If we could highlight each and every entry, we'd do it, but for now we can only bring you a handful of the ones that catch our eye.
For this next entry we're going to move up to the oldest group, Category IV - for students in tenth, eleventh and twelfth grades.
David Zhang from San Jose, California sent us this outstanding painting of some black bears titled Bears at the River. Done on canvas, David showcases his amazing skill as a painter, making the bears appear as if they could walk right off the image.
Being in Category IV, David will be up against some strong competition, but it looks like he's up to the challenge. We'll see how David, Category IV and the rest of the contest's entries fare when our judges come to look at it all in just under a month.
