Woo-hoo! Congratulations everybody. I hope you had fun participating in the contest and have learned a lot in the process. Samples of each winner’s work will be posted soon at: http://www.aba.org/yby/win.html

 

The ABA still needs two young birders to complete the Great Texas Birding Classic team. I highly recommend applying; it is a great experience and definitely worth missing school for 😉

 

 All expenses are paid except your flight to Houston.
