Presenting Category III Honorable Mentions from our seventh through ninth grade artists

2013 NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest Honorable Mention recipient Anastasia Golyakova

Fairfax, Virginia - Category III in our Youth Wildlife Art Contest is for artists in grades seven through nine. When we said that it was extremely tough for our judging panel to select the category's three winning entries, it was because these now-Honorable Mentions were in the running. Like with our Honorable Mentions from Category I and Category II, although these entries ultimately did not place, our judges had singled them out for their outstanding technique, effort, or for any other reason.

The colorful entry above of a fox comes from Anastasia Golyakova, a ninth grader from Richland, Washington.
