Detroit Zoological Society and Project S.N.A.P. Announce Youth Art Competition and Mosaic Murals Exhibition
The Detroit Zoological Society, in collaboration with Project S.N.A.P., is calling for entries for a Youth Art Competition and Mosaic Murals Exhibition in celebration of 2008 Year of the Frog and the Detroit Zoo’s 80th Anniversary. The competition is open to all K-12 public, private and home school students in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne Counties. The deadline for entries is May 9, 2008.
Year of the Frog is a global public awareness campaign to focus attention on endangered amphibians and the critical work being done by zoos and aquariums to save them. Student artists may express their interpretations of Michigan frogs, toads and salamanders, as well as images of amphibian residents at the Detroit Zoo‘s National Amphibian Conservation Center. Other themes may include the impact of habitat loss, climate change and pollution on amphibian populations, as well as efforts to propagate and conserve rare and endangered amphibian species from around the world.
