This year, 55 creative kids participated in the Kids’ Aquarium Contest at America’s Family Pet Expo. The contest provided kids with the opportunity to use their creativity to construct an underwater environment for fish in an aquarium given to them by America’s Family Pet Expo and the Kids’ Aquarium Contest sponsors. Throughout the process, the kids also learned a lot about aquatic care and maintaining a healthy fish environment.
The contest had three categories that were divided into groups based on age. Group I was for ages 5-8, Group II was for ages 9- 12, and Group III was for ages 13-16. Each of these ages groups could chose which category they wanted to enter: Natural, Creative, or Themed. The Natural Category was to mimic nature. The Creative Category was to stretch the child’s imagination. And the Themed Category could include anything store bought as a decorator set such as a movie set, Disney package or not hand crafted.
