Every year, the United States Congress organizes Endangered Species Day--and this year, the May 21 celebration of all creatures great, small, and disappearing got a boost from a nationwide art contest aimed at students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. The Grand Prize went to Carter Shroeder of Anchorage, Arkansas, who also won first place in the grade K-2 category for this piece that shows a polar bear and Beluga whale. Read on to see the prize-winning work of other young artists who are spreading the word about conservation.
