Manitoba Youth Angling Card

Since 2009, Fish Futures Inc. has facilitated a fish-themed artwork contest for children and the winning entry is featured on the cover of the Manitoba Youth Angling Card.  Each year highlights a different fish species and entries must include a short paragraph about the fish and its habitat.  Over 40,000 Youth Angling Cards are distributed for free to children in Manitoba each year.  

2016 Contest Opener

The fishing season opens on May 9th in southern Manitoba and May 16th in northern Manitoba. Spring weather has arrived and to keep you busy until fishing begins, we’ve decided to get an early start with the 2016 Contest opener.

This year’s feature fish is the lake sturgeon and we have created a new four-page submissions package to help you with your entry. We are also booking school visits for the spring and fall, so please contact us if you know of a school and teacher who would be willing to host a presentation about fish and fishing.

Thanks to the support of Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship, these submissions packages will also be distributed to kids who participate in Fish Winnipeg, the City’s Learn to Fish programs, and the Winnipeg Fish Festival.
