2018 Michigan Wild Turkey PatchAttention K-12 students - here’s a chance to make your mark by submitting the winning design for the 2020 wild turkey patch! All entries must be received by Dec. 31, 2018.

Original, hand-completed designs should include an eastern wild turkey or components of a turkey (e.g., feathers, tracks). Drawings may be done in any medium (pencil, oil, pen and ink, chalk, crayon, etc.) and be color or black and white. If color, no more than 13 colors may be used. All entries must be submitted on 8.5-inch-by-11-inch paper, and submitted without mat, glass, frame or cover sheet (spray chalk with fixative).

Each patch design entry must include the following phrases or elements:

  • "Wild Turkey Management Cooperator"
  • "2020"
  • The DNR logo (or simply create a circular placeholder for the logo)
  • The web URL "mi.gov/turkey"

First-, second- and third-place winners will receive cash awards of $100, $50 and $25, respectively.

The winning design will serve as the basis for the 2020 Michigan Wild Turkey Management Cooperator Patch. Contest details and entry form are available at minwtf.org/patch-contest-rules/.
