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.  

YAC in the News

The YAC program would not be possible without volunteer effort and financial support from Fish Futures and the Fisheries Enhancement Fund. We also owe a special thanks to Katherine Ward of Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship for her hard work and assistance.

However, we must also recognize the efforts of all those people who help us spread the word and get kids involved. Thank you to the teachers and schools that encourage their students to participate, to the libraries and tackle shops that put up our posters, and to organizations like the MLOA and MWF that include our listings in their e-newletters. Thank you to Kathy Kennedy and CJOB for having us on the radio in November and to The Swan Valley Star and Times and Hooked Magazine for their recent coverage of the program.

Please help us achieve our goal of having 1,000 kids per year participate in the Youth Angling Card Artwork Contest.
