Kid’s Aquarium Contest is a captivating learning program designed to teach children about the environment, stimulate their minds, ignite their creativity and warm their hearts through the rewards of pet care.
The first building block of the Kid’s Aquarium Contest is CREATIVITY. The children are challenged to design a fish aquarium that reflects their personality or showcases their favorite hobby. Pirates of the Caribbean, a baseball field and outer space adventures are a few that have received top ranks. Ten-gallon aquarium kits complete with a filter, lighting, heater, thermometer and net are donated and sponsored for each entrant by aquatic companies.
When the children arrive at America’s Family Pet Expo we ignite the second element within this learning program – RESPONSIBILITY. The AFPE team members assist the children as they prepare a personalized habitat for their fish. Our aquatic experts explain the basic care guidelines and empower each child to become a responsible pet owner.
The Kid’s Aquarium Contest not only enhances their understanding of aquatic care, it also teaches them the importance of a balanced ecosystem by understanding what factors are essential for a healthy fish environment. Those similar lessons can be applied to their own environment. Correlating a fun animal experience with the ENVIRONMENT is another benefit of this program.
Children from the ages of 5 to 16 are encouraged to join the competition. Aquariums will be lined up spotlighting the children’s creations. This healthy form of competition is a rewarding way to develop their SELF ESTEEM. Every contestant is rewarded in many ways – ribbons are given to all the children, each tank creation is theirs to keep and the pride of being an active citizen in community events will reward them for a lifetime.
