2017 Ward World Youth Silhouette Competition
ODCCA to Partner with Ward World Youth Silhouette Competition!
We're going to the World! www.wardmuseum.org
Hey kids - get started now! Entries from children participating in the March 11, 12, 2017 ODCCA Youth Silhouette Contest will be eligible to compete in the prestigious 2017 Ward World Carving Championship, April 28, 29, 30, 2017 in Ocean City, Maryland.
ODCCA will assist in the delivery of all winning entries to the Ward Show.
According to the Ward World committee, “The competition is to encourage Youth to become engaged in the art form of wildfowl carving, provide a venue to present their carvings to the public, and give them the competition experience. Entries may be done under the supervision of an adult, but the Youth must do the carving and painting.”
“Everyone is very excited in making this opportunity available to children to compete at the state and international level,” said Bob Lund, ODCCA President. “We are going to use the same rules and specie selected by the Ward World Committee. ODCCA will assist entries from our show to be entered in Ward show.”
The concept of the silhouette competition is simple and yet challenging. The Mourning Dove has been selected as the 2017 competition bird.
Entries can be done as a group project or as an individual. One entry per person. Each age group will be judged 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Best in Group. Age groups at the time of the Ward World registration are: 16 – 17 years of age;
12 – 15; 11 and under.
1. This year's Mourning Dove pattern and rules will be available on the Ward Museum website at: www.wardmuseum.org. Other patterns may be used.
