Calling all kids for wildlife!

Mar 13, 2012

Mar 15 - I-90 Wildlife Bridges is accepting submissions from kids grade K-12 for the annual Bridging Futures Art and Essay Contest!

Calling all kids for wildlife!

Top art for wildlife bridges from student Emma Hall from the 2010 contest!

Wanted: Creative elementary students (grades K-5) to participate in the eighth annual Bridging Futures Art and Essay Contest. The I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) are looking for you!

The Bridging Futures Contest helps the Bridges Coalition and WSDOT educate people about the importance of protecting both drivers and wildlife on our state’s highways.

Students should enter drawings that show how wildlife can safely cross highways. They must also submit a short essay explaining their drawing and answering the question: Why is it important to consider animals when designing highways?

Encourage your students to get creative! 

The contest’s top two finalists will receive an awards ceremony at their school, as well as a framed copy of their artwork and fun prizes. Additionally their artwork will be displayed on a billboard along Interstate 90 this summer.

The teachers of the top two winning students will receive a $200 cash prize and other prizes to be used for their classroom. The top 10 pieces of artwork from the contest will be exhibited in businesses, beginning with a feature at the Western Governors Association's annual meeting hosted at Suncadia resort in Cle Elum this year.

See a lesson plan - learn more! Contest entries need to be postmarked by Friday, April 20, 2012.
