    The Pennsylvania Game Commission invites Pennsylvania students in middle school, grades 6 through 8 and high school, grades 9 through 12, to participate in the American Marten Reintroduction and Management Plan Art Contest.  

    The American Marten was last seen in the state of Pennsylvania around 120 years ago. Now, the Pennsylvania Game Commission is considering reintroducing the American marten to the state. The Pennsylvania Game Commission is looking for artist representations of the American marten on suitable Pennsylvania landscapes to be featured in the American Marten Reintroduction and Management Plan.  

    Through this art contest, the Pennsylvania Game Commission hopes to:  

    • Promote wildlife art among young artists.  
    • Enhance students’ knowledge of the American marten, a native species to Pennsylvania which hasn’t been seen in the state in 120 years.  
    • Recognize and support the talents of young artists.  

    The winning artwork will be displayed at the Pennsylvania Game Commission, 2001 Elmerton Avenue, Harrisburg, PA, from July 10 through August 11, 2023.

    Pennsylvania and New Jersey educators who apply before April 13th will be given special consideration, but anyone is welcome to apply at any point, and grants will be awarded on a rolling basis based on the quality of the applications, with preference given to educators from districts with limited resources.
