Have you thought about enrolling your kids in the Aquatic Experience Chicago’s Kid’s Aquarium Contest?
If you haven’t, you should! The Kid’s Aquarium Contest, sponsored by Tetra and Marineland, is a great way for your kids to use their creativity to learn about the aquatic environment as well as the responsibilities and rewards of pet care.
The contest, open to children from the ages 5 to16, is an ideal opportunity that allows kids to let their imagination soar as they design their own underwater environment! Each contestant will design an aquarium that reflects the child’s personality, hobbies and dreams…his or her imagination is the limit! The contestant will provide the decorations and fish, but will receive a ten gallon freshwater aquarium kit, complete with a filter, lighting, heater, thermometer, and net, to keep!
Registrants will conceptualize their aquariums at home, but when they get to the Aquatic Experience Chicago, they will receive their aquarium. Pet experts will then teach the registrants how to prepare their personalized habitat and how to care for the fish.
The creations will be on display throughout the event. Judges will award a first, second and third place winner for each age group (Group I – ages 5- 8, Group II – ages 9-12, and Group III – ages 13- 16) and also for the Natural, Creative and Themed Categories. One aquarium within the Natural, Creative and Themed categories will be awarded the Sponsor Sweepstakes Award. All children will be honored with a participation ribbon and the rewards of responsible pet ownership.
The Kid’s Aquarium Contest was specifically designed to be a fun, creative experience for kids in which they can learn about the aquatic environment, stimulate their minds, and warm their hearts to the rewards of pet care.
The Contest is now full.
