Description

In February 2014, the Friends of Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park hosted their First Annual Children's Art Show. The goals of this event are to showcase the artistic talents of our local students and to promote community awareness and enjoyment of our park. Artwork from Collier County public and private schools, grades K–5, is displayed at the pavilion in Area 5. On Saturday morning judges award 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mention in K-2 and 3–5 grades. The public can vote for the People's Choice Award which is awarded on the following day. The theme will be artwork that embodies a nature or the best of a beach park. In 2019, over 180 entries delighted the visitors and five awards were judged as winners in grades K-2 and a similar amount in grades 3-5. In addition, a People's Choice and a Ranger Pick were also awarded. The most redeeming feature of our show was to see the smile on the faces of the children as they proudly identified their artwork for parents and grandparents. The kids beamed!
