Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Snappy Sport Senter of Kalispell, and Flathead Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited, are sponsoring a regional competition for the national State-Fish Art Contest. The contest is open to all students grades 4 through twelve. The artwork will focus on cutthroat trout, the Montana state fish. Cutthroats were chosen as the state fish in 1977 in a poll of over 200,000 Montanans. Cutthroats are a symbol of clean, cold water, and healthy aquatic habitat, part of Montana's natural heritage.
There was no contest in 2011. Look for details about the 2012 contest early in 2012.
