Calling all Wisconsin fourth-, fifth- and six-graders: It’s time to bring out your inner artist for the DNR’s third-annual poster contest.
The contest helps the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources spread the word to Keep Wildlife Wild.
The goal of the contest is to create a poster that teaches the importance of enjoying and observing wildlife in the wild and not keeping wildlife in homes or as pets.
Poster contest rules
- The poster entry must contain the words: “Keep Wildlife Wild 2021” and follow the theme of the Keep Wildlife Wild tagline: “A young wild animal’s best chance for survival is with its mother!”
- All posters must consist of original artwork of Wisconsin native wildlife.
- Posters must fit an 8 ½” x 11″ sheet of paper.
- Posters must be submitted individually; no team creations.

- Participants may begin submitting electronically on Nov. 13.
- To be considered, submissions must be received by Feb. 12, 2021.
- There is no grace period.
- First, second and third-place finalists will be selected for each grade level.
- Finalists will be announced during the fourth-annual Keep Wildlife Wild week in April 2021.
