GILLETTE, Wyo. — The public is invited to attend the 41st annual Wyoming Game and Fish Conservation Stamp Art Show at 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 26. This educational event will take place virtually. This year’s art show features the western tanager.

The western tanager is a stocky bird for its size with a yellow body and a blaze orange-red head. They grow to be about 7.25 inches long and have an 11.5-inch wing span. These bright birds inhabit forested areas and are often difficult to see as they prefer to hang out at the tops of trees.  

“We’re excited to host the 2025 Wyoming Conservation Stamp Art Competition — and it’s sure to be competitive. This year we have a big show with 93 entries from artists in 21 states,” said Chris Martin, Game and Fish visual communications supervisor and coordinator of this year’s contest. “Over half of the submissions are from Wyoming artists — and about 34% of all entries are artists entering the show for the first time.”  

Adult contest winners: The winning image will be featured on the 2025 collectible conservation stamp. The top five receive a monetary award, including $3,500 for the winner. Game and Fish will offer the winning stamps as a collectible item, which can be purchased through the Game and Fish Store

Youth contest winners: The top three from each grade level will receive a monetary award of $50 to $150. 

Winning and honorable mention entries for both contests will be displayed at the Game and Fish’s Cheyenne Headquarters through May 17.
