Endangered Species Chalk Art Event
May 21, 2021 @ 8:00 am - May 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
In honor of Endangered Species Day 2021, the Endangered Species Coalition is holding a nationwide, all-ages chalk art competition that anyone can participate in!
More than 1 million species globally are threatened with extinction. Art is one of the most powerful tools we have to draw attention to this crisis. That’s why we’re holding the Endangered Species Chalk Art Event!
From Friday, May 21st through Sunday, May 23rd, we’re inviting people around the world to create chalk art depicting threatened, endangered, or vanishing species. Not only is this a great way to celebrate wildlife, but you can also win prizes! More than $400 in prize money and chocolate bars will be given away in awards for the best artwork and at random to lucky participants.
This event is open to people of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels, and you can create your chalk art anywhere that is safe and legal, such as an indoor blackboard, a driveway, sidewalks, or other spaces.
To enter the competition and be eligible to win a prize, all you have to do is post a photo of your chalk art on Instagram between May 21st and May 23rd. If you include #EndangeredSpeciesChalkArt and tag @endangeredspeciescoalition in your post, we’ll include your art in the contest.
We can’t wait to see all the wonderful wildlife chalk art that everyone will create. Thank you for helping us raise awareness of the importance of protecting wildlife this Endangered Species Day!
