Sturgeon Story Contest: Community Edition
May 1 @ 8:00 am - May 22 @ 5:00 pmFree
Friends of the St. Clair River launched its seventh annual Sturgeon Stories Contest, this year opening the contest to anyone of any age. Since 2012, Friends of the St. Clair River has received 700 entries every year from St. Clair County fifth graders sharing the Lake Sturgeon story through visual art, technical drawings and creative writing.
“We didn’t want to go a year without Sturgeon Stories. We are giving families and community members a chance to participate,” said Amy Meeker-Taylor, Environmental Educator, “and share their creativity and passion with the public”.
Submissions may be Visual Art, like drawings and posters, Technical Drawings, like diagrams, timelines and infographics, or Creative Writing like poetry, short stories and original songs. Submissions may cover lake sturgeon biology, habitat, their connection to Native Americans, history of sturgeon in the Great Lakes, or how to protect fish, prevent pollution and keep water clean.
The contest begins May 1st and entries must be received by May 22nd. Entries will be judged locally and prizes will be awarded. Winners will be displayed at the Sturgeon Festival on August 2nd. For contest rules visit www.sturgeonfestival.com.
