Registration open for youth birding competition
Artists also needed for competition’s T-shirts

Registration is open and available online for those interested in participating in the annual Georgia Youth Birding Competition, which is set for April 27-28, and offers young “birders” the opportunity to hone their avian-identifying skills.

In addition, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources is looking for some good, young artists to participate in a T-shirt contest. 

The grand-prize winner’s art will appear on the 2018 Youth Birding Competition T-shirt, and they will receive a $100 gift card.

The birding competition is free. Registration deadline is March 31 for the Georgia Youth Birding Competition, which is open to youth of all skill levels. Teams can register in one of four age divisions and compete against other groups their age.
