Scholarships

Migrating Birds are Traveling Birds
Art & Writing Contest

Each year we offer scholarships to our FeatherFest FledglingFest program to area youngsters. Children in grades 1-8 are encouraged to participate in our art contest and each winner along with an accompanying adult is treated to select family nature activities. The artwork from all of the finalists is displayed at FeatherFest Headquarters for festival registrants and the general public to enjoy.

Because we were not able to have a headquarters at FeatherFest this year, we created a wonderful online gallery of the children’s art and writing for all to enjoy. Our 2021 theme was Migrating Birds are Traveling Birds and children were invited to celebrate our visiting birds by choosing a migratory bird to learn about and then create an art and/or writing piece inspired by that bird.

Our scholarship program is made possible through the generosity of The John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation.
