The New Mexico Wildlife Federation engages youth in outdoor recreation experiences that teach conservation, science, and responsibility to cultivate the next generation of conservationists. Now, we want to hear from you!
New Mexico Youth (age 5-17)
You are invited to enter the New Mexico Wildlife Federation, Gen Out Youth Club Art Contest. Open to all youth ages 5 – 17, the contest encourages participants to draw on their artistic talents to convey the activities and sights they like to see or do while out in nature.
By participating, children will not only share their insights into the great outdoors, but they also have the chance to win great prizes!
The contest is open to New Mexico residents ages 5 – 17.
Entries should reflect the general theme “How I enjoy the outdoors.” Drawings can be done on the template available for download here, or a separate 8″ x 10″ sheet of paper. Use your imagination and have fun!
Acceptable media are paint (water colors or oil), colored pencil, ink, markers, or pastels.
Entry forms must be completed and signed by the student’s legal guardian. Please attach the entry form with tape or other fixative (if using glue, be careful to use one that will not run through and damage the artwork). Please do not attach these forms with paper clips or staples, which can damage the artwork. Download the form: Gen Out Youth Club Art Contest Flyer and Form
Entries must be mailed flat or rolled in a tub – no folding, please! If mailing flat, we recommend you use cardboard or a similar material to protect artwork during mailing.
