National Fossil Day Art & Photo Contest


In celebration of National Fossil Day, October 17, children of all ages are invited to enter the National Fossil Day Art and Photography Contest.

This year's theme is "The Age of Reptiles–More Than Just Dinosaurs."

Think of the fossils you've seen from National Parks. More than 260 units of the National Park Service have fossils of some kind. There are records of everything from microscopic plankton to giant dinosaurs.

The artwork can be in the form of a sketch, painting, watercolor, photograph (black/white or color), or computer-generated image. All artwork must be 2D (two dimensional) and flat. Be sure to include a sentence or two on your submission form describing your choice and explaining why it is your favorite.

The artwork will be judged by a panel on originality, creativity, quality and, most importantly, relevance to the topic. Submissions will be separated into and judged based upon age groups.

Submissions due by 5 p.m. October 5, 2018.

Entry forms may be submitted by mail along with your artwork. All mailed entry forms must be sent to:
