The artwork of two Fayette County elementary students is showcased on the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website after taking top honors in the Give Wildlife a Chance poster contest.
The two winners are John Long of Sara Harp Minter Elementary who placed second in the kindergarten division, and Alfonzo Mitchell of Fayetteville Elementary who placed second in the fourth grade division.
The theme for the 2020 contest was “Georgia Bogs: Unique Wetlands for Rare Species.” Participants entered the contest at the local school level with drawings and paintings of native Georgia plants and animals that were in line with the theme. Entries were judged on originality and the quality and impact of the artwork. Top school-level entries proceeded to the state contest at the State Botanical Garden, part of the University System of Georgia in Athens.
The annual conservation art competition is sponsored by the Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division, the State Botanical Garden, and The Environmental Resources Network.
