Audubon of Martin County welcomes members and their families to participate in our many Young Audubon activities. The "My Favorite Bird" Essay, Art and Photo Contest held annually is open to all students in Martin County, including public, private and home-schooled students. The Essay and Art Contest is open to Grades 3, 4, and 5 Elementary Students. The new Photo Contest is open to all Middle and High School Students. Winners are ranked within each school and grade. Children are rewarded with great prizes and an Awards Ceremony with BBQ in April. Every year the judges report that choosing winners is a very difficult task as the essays are interesting with excellent topics and the art work is creative. Martin County has many talented children! This year will be our first for the Photo Contest headed up by John Nelson, President.
