Youth Art Contest

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2016 Youth Art Contest! The contest closed on December 17th, and we are now in the process of judging entries.

Our Youth Art Contest encourages students to seek inspiration in California’s state parks.  Youth ages 4-18 are encouraged to submit art that reflected the theme of "Discover State Park" - creating artwork that shares their past experiences in state parks and what they have discovered during their visits.

We had over 375 entries this year- more than doubling the entries from 2015! Due to the high volume of entries, contest results will be delayed until mid-February. We appreciate your patience as we finish the judging process. 

Our first, second, and third place winners in each age category will receive prize packages from our E-Store.  We will showcase entries online, in print, and in venues throughout California.
