Sturgeon Story Art Contest
10th Anniversary Edition
Students who participate in our Sturgeon Science School presentations are challenged to submit an entry in our Sturgeon Art Contest that showcases their knowledge of the threatened lake sturgeon by means of art, song, or poetry. Thank you to all the 5th grade students who participate each year with a poster entry. Votes are cast by the public with pocket change each year in May and June. Voting raises over $1,000 which helps keep Sturgeon Science School free to future students!
Congratulations to our 2023 Sturgeon Story Contest winners! Chael Amiels, Mia Maxey, and Anaveah Wilson are winners out of 700 art pieces we received from local 5th grade students. To celebrate the contest's tenth anniversary, we awarded these winners the rare opportunity to hand-release a baby lake sturgeon back into the wild during a special beachside ceremony at Blue Water Sturgeon Festival.
