Audubon Art Contest Showcases Talent


Audubon Miami Valley opened its fourth annual K-12 bird art contest on March 21, 2015 at the Oxford Community Arts Center in Oxford, Ohio. The exhibition featured 91 entries from nine area school districts: Eaton, Hamilton, Middletown, Talawanda, and McGuffey Montessori School. Entries focused on two themes: Birds of the Midwest and Birds of the Mississippi Flyway. A live bird presentation by Shawn Conner (Hueston Woods Naturalist), an awards ceremony and an Outreach Naturist program presented by Chris Rowlands from Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm topped the afternoon’s activities. Students received a ribbon of Merit, Excellence or Participation as well as a certificate, hand folded origami bird and a gift bag. Congratulations to all the young artists for their creativity and interest in birds.
