NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish wants to hear from New Mexico’s young people. The department is holding an essay contest encouraging kids and teen to research an aspect of hunting, fishing, conservation or wildlife.

Entry submissions categories are elementary students, middle school students and high school students. Submissions will be judged by presentation, information, originality and pictures. Submissions are due by June 30 by 5 p.m. and winning announcements will be made on July 17.
