Call for Entries in the 2012 Youth Hunting Memories Contest Castleton Vermont

posted at 1:07 pm Mon Nov 19th, 2012 by (WherezIt_Staff)

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is seeking submissions for the sixth annual Youth Hunting Memories Contest. Young hunters need only to submit a short essay or artwork describing his or her time in the field on a hunt.

Bagged game is not a requirement.

The essay or art should describe why hunting is important to the young hunter and must include a description of one of their hunting experiences. Criteria will be judged according to creativity, ethics, landowner relations, appreciation of wildlife, respect for our hunting heritage, hunting skills, and family. Entrants are encouraged to send in hunting photos with their story.

Entries will be categorized by age -- 9 years of age and under, 10-12 years of age and 13-16 years of age. One selected entry from each category will win a set of special prizes from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.

Winners will be announced on Saturday, April 20, at the inaugural Youth Hunting Awareness Day held at Kehoe Conservation Camp in Castleton.

Submissions are property of the department and cannot be returned. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department reserves the right to publish photos and essays. Submissions must include the hunter's first and last names, address, age, telephone number, and location of hunt.

The contest is open to Vermont hunters 16 and younger. Submissions must be received by January 4th, 2013 by 4:30 pm.
