Submissions for 2019 Keep Wildlife Wild poster accepted beginning Jan. 2

Published by Central Office December 4, 2018

Contact(s): Dianne Robinson, DNR wildlife biologist, 262-424-9827

MADISON - The Department of Natural Resources' Keep Wildlife Wild initiative is announcing its inaugural poster contest for 2019. The contest will be an annual event in the future. Students currently participating in fourth through sixth grade instruction may submit a poster for the contest.

Wisconsin's Keep Wildlife Wild initiative began in 2014 with a focus on providing information about wildlife species' natural behaviors, tips on how to determine if a wild animal is truly orphaned and what to do if someone finds a wild animal in need of assistance.

Dianne Robinson, wildlife biologist with the DNR and the Keep Wildlife Wild co-chair, says "This year, we are excited to incorporate more student involvement by offering this poster contest, which teachers can use along with the Keep Wildlife Wild lesson plan." Since 2014, Keep Wildlife Wild has developed many resources, including wildlife fact sheets and flowcharts to determine if an animal is sick, injured or orphaned. We also have a brochure, lesson plan, cartoon and a variety of news pieces and social media posts."

Posters submitted for the contest must contain the words "Keep Wildlife Wild" and follow the theme of the Keep Wildlife Wild tagline: "A young wild animal's best chance for survival is with its mother!" All posters must consist of original artwork, fit an 8.5x11 inch sheet of paper and be submitted individually; team creations will not be accepted. The contest will run January 2 to February 22, 2019. First, second and third place finalists will be selected for each grade level by a panel of judges, and finalists will be announced April 7-13, 2019 during our second-annual Keep Wildlife Wild week.

Additional details about contest rules and submission procedures will be available in another press release in early January and in the coming weeks. More information is available on our website. Visit dnr.wi.gov and search keyword "Keep Wildlife Wild."
