Delta competition to shine a spotlight on Burns Bog

January 29, 2017 by  

Delta’s Burns Bog provides an important home for native plants and animals, and children across the province are invited to tell the world what makes this wetland so important.

The Burns Bog Conservation Society is hosting its second annual art competition, which is open to all elementary and high school students. The theme for the contest is “A Bog’s Life!” and the entries must be a representation of the wildlife or the reason why the artist feels the wetland is vital.

The grades will be divided into four categories, which includes kindergarten to grade 3, grade 4 to grade 7, grade 8 to grade 10 and grade 11 to grade 12. The four categories for entry types are short stories and poetry, photography/video, paintings/drawings and 3D. The entries may be selected for inclusion in the school calendars for 2017-2018.

There will be an awards ceremony held during The Earth Day Pilgrimage to Burns Bog, which has been scheduled for April 23rd. All entries must be received by no later than March 17th. Organizers of a competition like this can use a printing services provider to create award certificates and an assortment of items that have been branded with its logo that can be used as prizes for the winners.

An entry form has been made available online, and the submissions can be mailed to 4-7953 120th Street, Delta, BC V4C 6P6. Additional details have been provided on the Burns Bog Conservation Society’s website.
