Student’s design celebrates 20 years of decals

-A A +A

A high school art student at Circle Christian School in Winter Park captured top honors in the 2011-2012 manatee decal art contest sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Bekah Scoville, 14, created an image of two manatees swimming in water painted in pastel blues and greens.
“It is encouraging to see this young woman use her talent to support such an important cause,” FWC Commission Chairman Rodney Barreto said. “Bekah’s design will help the FWC promote the protection of Florida’s endangered state marine mammal.”
Since 1992, manatee decals have been available to Floridians registering their vessels or vehicles in exchange for a voluntary donation. Bonnie Abellera, the FWC’s manatee decal coordinator, announced that Scoville’s artwork will grace the 20th edition of the manatee decal, with the caption “Support manatee conservation.”  Decal donations raise approximately $70,000 annually for the Save the Manatee Trust Fund, which helps pay for the FWC’s conservation efforts.
