Endangered species fifth grade art contest winners on display at D&R Greenway

“Indiana Bat in Flight” by Emma Phelan.

Art work created by fifth graders depicting threatened and endangered species is on display at the D&R Greenway through October 18.

For the annual “Speces on the Edge” contest, students painted pictures and wrote scientific essays on New Jersey’s more than 80 threatened and endangered species. For this 15th annual competition, art was chosen by artists and essays were selected by area scientists. The students’ essays describe the causes for animals having become endangered as well as methods for future protection. This year’s competition drew more than 2,500 entries. The young artists were honored recently at an awards ceremony at the New Jersey Education Association in Trenton.

The Mercer County winner was Emma Phelan for “Indiana Bat in Flight.” Joanne Bennet was the winner for  Middlesex County for “January’s Elusive Short-eared Owl,” and Ulises Tovar was the Hunterdon County winner for “Black skimmers in Dynamic Interaction.”

Gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. The Olivia Rainbow Gallery is located in the D&R Greenway’s Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, Princeton. Admission is free.
