2016 Youth Essay Contest Offers Shot at Lifetime Hunting License

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and California Wildlife Officers Foundation are again co-sponsoring the annual “Passing on the Tradition” essay contest for young hunters.

The California Wildlife Officers Foundation will recognize one grand prize winner with a lifetime California hunting license, valued at more than $600. Second and third place winners will also be selected and prize packages will be awarded.14705659448_049b713a4f_o

This year’s contest invites entrants to share their favorite hunting memory.

“Young hunters learn important lessons about ethics, sportsmanship and conservation every time they venture into the field with their mentors, and they’re creating memories that will last a lifetime,” said CDFW Hunter Education Program Administrator Capt. Robert Pelzman. “We are looking forward to hearing about the experiences that have made the greatest impressions on them.”

The contest is open to all junior hunting license holders, as well as youths under 18 who have earned a hunter education certificate. Entrants should submit an essay of 500 words or less, describing a past hunting experience (either their own or observing a mentor) that was particularly memorable or special.

Entries should be submitted via email to Lt. John Nores at john.nores@wildlife.ca.gov and must be received on or before Friday, Dec. 16, 2016 at 5 p.m. Applicants must provide their date of birth and a contact telephone number.

Essays will be reviewed and scored by CDFW wildlife officers and other CDFW representatives. The winners will be notified by telephone.

For additional information, please contact Lt. John Nores at (408) 591-5174.

AWARD CEREMONY: The grand prize will be awarded during a special ceremony at the International Sportsmen’s Exposition (ISE) show in Sacramento on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017 at 1:30 p.m.  The contest winner must be present with a parent or guardian.
