"The Friends of Red River National Wildlife Refuge are presenting the annual Refuge Celebration on Saturday, October 16, and this
year we're holding a student art and photography contest," says Heather Spaulding. "The theme is Louisiana's Natural Treasures, and students can enter their work anytime between now and the morning of the Celebration."

She adds, "It will be a great opportunity for young artists to display their work at a community event, learn about local wildlife, and compete for a $25 first prize in each category. The artwork will be displayed from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and the prizes will be awarded at 1:00 p.m."

Thank you for sharing this! The gates will be open at 8:30, so student artists should deliver their entries between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. Be sure to read the guidelines on our website and get your entry form signed. I hope to see lots of you there!
