WildSafe BC Colouring Contest

Contest open to all in Valley to show how you keep wildlife wild

WildSafeBC wants to know how you help to keep wildlife wild and your community safe in the Columbia Valley! Send us an original drawing that describes this theme, and you could win a prize and have your drawing featured in the Pioneer! We’ve got a gift certificate to Peppi’s Pizza and more to give away!

All you have to do is draw a picture showing how you and your family help to reduce or prevent wildlife conflict at home. For inspiration, visit https://wildssafebc.com and click through the different links to read some suggestions about what you can do to help keep wildlife wild within your community. Examples can vary from keeping garbage in a certified bin (or inside your house or garage), to taking birdfeeders down at the end of the summer. Bonus points will be awarded for creativity!

Please include:

• Artist’s name

• Grade

• School

• A short sentence describing how the subject of your drawing helps keep wildlife wild and your community safe

• A contact phone number

Here’s a few ways to submit your drawing:

1. Give it to your teacher and the WildSafeBC coordinator can pick them up at your school in December.

2. Take a photo of your submission and upload it to our facebook page: “WildSafeBC Columbia Valley.”

3. Or email the photo to Andrea Smillie (local coordinator) at: invermere@wildsafebc.com.

Deadline to participate is Friday, December 1st. Winners will be contacted by December 5th.

Anyone in the Valley is welcome to participate. For more information, contact Andrea Smillie, WildSafe BC community coordinator, at invermere@wildsafebc.com.
