Frequently Asked Questions

"We had a whole unit on this. The kids learned SO MUCH science along with the history of frogs all in the name of art!"
-- Karen, Ohio


Michele Hamill Frog ArtAmphibian populations worldwide are in the midst of a mass extinction crisis, yet most people are completely unaware! We need your help in getting the word out: we encourage all nature lovers to seek out their inner frog artist and participate in the SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest! People of all ages, nationalities, and skill levels are encouraged to enter the contest, and we hope all schools will draw frog art on Save The Frogs Day!

The SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest invites you to create your coolest frog artwork. The contest will raise awareness of the amphibian extinction problem by getting people involved and interested, and the artwork will be used on t-shirts, stickers, posters, coffee mugs, hats, and in greeting cards and books, to both publicize our cause and raise money for SAVE THE FROGS! amphibian conservation efforts.

Who can enter?

Art ContestAnybody! The SAVE THE FROGS! Art Contest serves as an excellent method for getting students interested in both frogs and art, and gives them a productive and enjoyable diversion from their normal school activities, while educating them about frog extinctions. We encourage students and teachers to get their art classes involved on Save The Frogs Day. We encourage amateur and professional artists and graphic designers to take part as well. And the more countries represented the better! It is free to enter the contest, though we suggest all mail-in entries include a few dollars to assist our frog-saving efforts!

"Dear Dr. Kriger, Thank you for your important work to save our frogs! As a school librarian at an elementary school, I was delighted to come across your website, and held a schoolwide art contest patterned after yours. Our winner’s work is enclosed, plus a few extras. The contest truly raised awareness among my students, and I know some of these kids will now have a greater respect for frogs and animals as a result."
-- Kelly Posey, San Marcos, TX

Awesome frogs
Frog art by Ho Yu Yan, China

"Thanks for all that you and your organization do for amphibians worldwide."
-- Daryle Mishina, Art Teacher, Hawaii


Use your artistic license and do what you think is best, but bear in mind these suggestions:

-- No glitter please -- it's messy!
-- No religious content.
-- No tracing of other people's content.
-- Whitespace does not look very appealing. We suggest putting color on the entire piece.
-- Do not put your frogs at the extreme edge of your art, as that would result in them getting chopped off if they went to print. Try to leave at least 0.25in (6.5mm) of "other art" such as leaves, grass, river etc...we would rather chop the river edge than the frog's leg! The same goes for any writing on your art: don't put it too near the edge.
-- Your writing is just as important as your drawing. Whatever text you put on your art, whether it be SAVE THE FROGS!, or a line of poetry, make it look nice, not like a last minute, hurried addition.
-- Have fun!

We love what you are doing. I am am so proud of my 1st grade son. His passion and love of frogs and his commitment to spreading the word is inspiring. He had us construct a frog pond in our back yard to do some of his own conservation. This is what learning to love something bigger than yourself is all about. Thank you for your work and time."
-- Brenda Slater, Alexandria, VA
