Invasive Species Action Week - Youth Art Contest - 2017 Winners

2017 Theme: Don’t Let it Loose!

The challenge was to pick an invasive species that might be released by pet/aquarium owners, how their release affects our natural resources, or what you could do with unwanted pets/plants instead of releasing them. Artwork was placed in 3 divisions: Grades 2 – 4; 5 – 8; and 9 – 12. The top three winners in each division are displayed below, in addition to a special Invasive Species Program Choice Award.
