2015 Contest Closed - Winners Announced February 1st
Lake sturgeon artwork and application forms were due December 31st, and judging night is fast approaching. Thank you to all the students, teachers, and schools who participated. The winners will be announced on this blog no later than February 1st, 2016. We might have a record number of entries this year. And special thanks to the students and staff at Jack River School in Norway House, who advised me that "namew" is the Cree word for sturgeon. Best of luck to all participants!
In 2015, the YAC program was able to visit ten schools throughout Manitoba and present on fish, fishing and stewardship. We appreciate the support of the Manitoba Lodges and Outfitters Association and the Hunter and Angler Preservation Fund for allowing us to expand the program and bring our message to hundreds more students.
