Drawing Contest

The Ven Te Chow Hydrosystems Lab with support form USGS and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant is working on research regarding Asian carp in spawning rivers. As part of an outreach component of this research, we are focusing on the early life stages of Asian carp and prevention and control mechanisms of these species.

This drawing contest was part of a sensibilization program on Asian carp at early life stages prevention and control initiatives. Target participants were primary (grades k-5), middle (grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12) students.  Students were asked to submit an original and inspiring schematic drawing on how to protect Lake Michigan from a potential Asian carp invasion. 

Three winning students were selected and will receive an Amazon Kindle Fire.    Special presentations were organized at the 2013 University of Illinois Engineering Open House, The Orpheum Children’s Science Museum (Champaign, IL), Urbana High School (grade 9), and Booker T. Washington Elementary School (Kindergarten program).
