High school students in Routt and Moffat counties have until March 25 to submit an original work of writing or visual art to the Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition’s Crane-Inspired Creative Arts Scholarship Contest.
The 2022 competition offers two categories of art. The written arts category asks for a non-fiction essay or a fictional story between 750 and 1500 words or a group of three poems. The second category, visual arts, allows for the submission of a painting, sketch, photograph or digital work.
The artwork must be original and accurately reflect the physical characteristics, behavior and habitat of Rocky Mountain Sandhill Cranes.
For more information, consult a local school counselor or go to ColoradoCranes.org/creative-arts-scholarship-contest.
The winner of each category will receive a $3,000 scholarship. Second place in each category will receive a $1,500 scholarship.
An honorable mention winner from one of the categories will receive a $1,000 scholarship. Scholarships are dependent on the winner’s acceptance into a continuing education institution.
