WINONA LAKE — The Center for Lakes & Streams is drawing attention to Kosciusko County’s local waterways with their annual student art contest, inspired by the lakes and streams.

The eighth annual Wonderful Water Student Art Contest is now accepting entries.

The theme for this year’s contest is “Lake and Stream Habitats.” Students are encouraged to submit artwork depicting Kosciusko County waters and the native species which inhabit them, or call them “‘home.” Submissions are due April 15, 2015.

Fourth through 12th-grade students from Kosciusko County public, private and home schools are encouraged to enter.

Cash prizes will be given for first through sixth places in six different grade categories: fourth and fifth grades, sixth and seventh grades, eighth and ninth grades, 10th grade, 11th grade, and 12th grade. Winning artwork will be displayed around the county.

No artwork depicting invasive species will be considered. For example, trumpeter and tundra swans are acceptable but mute swans are not. Instead, the center encourages promoting the value of species of plants and animals native to Indiana in local lakes.

2016-CalendarAs part of the contest announcement, the center is selling calendars for 2016 that showcase last year’s winning artwork. Calendars are $5 each.

For contest information or to purchase a calendar visit or call (574) 372-5100, ext. 6453.

This year’s contest is sponsored by the City of Warsaw Stormwater Utility, Didage Sales Company, Inc., Kay Young-Todd Realty, Kosciusko Community Hospital, Lake City Bank, Louis Dreyfus Commodities, Medtronic, MutualBank, Surgical Power, Inc., Tippecanoe Watershed Foundation, The Papers and Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A.
