Save the Sea Lions Student Art Competition

The Birmingham Zoo would like to invite area students to participate in our Second Annual Conservation Student Art Competition. This year’s competition will focus on sea lions. Sea lions have been significantly impacted by human interaction and hazards like net and fishing line entanglement, gun shots, illegal pick-ups and boat strikes.

Students in kindergarten through eighth grade may submit artwork throughout the month of April.  Winning artists will be recognized by

having their artwork displayed in the Zoo’s Predator Building during the summer for thousands of Zoo guests to admire.

Winners will be selected by grade level groupings: K-2, 3-5 and 6-8.

Entries may be mailed to the Zoo or dropped at the Zoo Membership Office after 3:00pm each day during the month of April.  Entries must be postmarked by April 30, 2015.

Winning artists from each grade level grouping will receive a complimentary Family Fun Day at the Birmingham Zoo.

See Contest Details for additional information.
