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.  

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.
