The National Rifle Association and American Rifleman would like to congratulate the winners of the George Montgomery/NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest. Best In Show recipient Larissa Weber, grade 11, of Anderson, Ind., was awarded an NRA gift package and $1,000 for her submission titled “Red Fox.” The George Montgomery/NRA Youth Wildlife Art Contest encourages youth to nurture their interest in the visual arts, hunting and wildlife by providing an outlet for their creative talent, practiced artistic techniques and wildlife identification skills through the creation of original works. Students grades one through 12 (including home-schooled children) are eligible to enter, and all entries must portray North American game birds or animals that can be legally hunted or trapped. This year’s contest begins Sept. 1, 2018, and entries must be postmarked by Oct. 31 to be eligible. Visit artcontest.nra.org for more information and to download the entry form.
