 Hello!

My name is Ben. I would like to tell you about an amazing project focusing on endangered species across the United States.

Several years ago, an artist named Jan Jagoe began organizing a nationwide project that blends art and endangered species education into a scholarship program for high school students.

California has been chosen to participate during the Fall semester of 2017. An endangered species will be chosen soon for that state. All of the high school art students in California will be invited to participate. One piece of artwork will be chosen and a $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to the winning student during November, 2017.

Posters and entry forms are being sent out to high school art departments or you can download them on our website. T-shirts and other promotional items are available through a link on our website. Sales of these items will help finance the ongoing project.
