Keep Wildlife Wild Poster Contest Now Open

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ 2022 Keep Wildlife Wild poster contest is now open to students in fourth, fifth and sixth grades who are enrolled in public, private, parochial or home schools in Wisconsin.

The goal is to create a poster that teaches the importance of enjoying and observing wildlife in the wild and not keeping wild creatures in homes or as pets. For inspiration to help design a poster and learn about Wisconsin animals, visit

All submissions must be received by email or mail by Feb. 18, 5 pm, and they must include the student’s entry form and artwork. Judging will take place in March, and submitters will receive an email about the winners in early April.
