Yes, a kid under the age of 10 can probably draw a polar bear better than you. This Friday is Endangered Species Day, organized by the United States Congress. To bring attention to the occasion and the plight of threatened animals in their area, students from kindergarten through 12th grade all over the U.S. submitted their best sketches, paintings, collages, and other artwork.

From California foxes and Alaska polar bears to east coast piping plovers and Arizona jaguars, see the winning art--including that of grand prize recipient Carter Schroeder of Anchorage, AK shown here--and some of the talented semifinalists.
