State Fish Art Contest

Got a young artist residing in your home? Be sure to encourage them to enter the annual Wildlife Forever State-Fish Art contest. This contest is open to kids in Grades K–12, but the deadline for entries is March 31—and you have to enter to win!  

Students across the United States and internationally have the opportunity to win prizes and recognition while learning about state-fish species, behaviors, aquatic habitats, and conservation. Using art, the State-Fish Art Contest ignites children’s imagination while teaching them about fish and fishing.  

Angler Award Program

The Georgia Angler Award

Catching a big fish is always a thrill, and usually requires exceptional fishing skill. Each year WRD recognizes the achievement of anglers that catch "trophy" fish (by weight or length) by presenting the angler with an Angler Award. The fish does not have to be a new state record to qualify.
