Young artists are invited to create their best and most realistic version of a dinosaur in its natural habitat as part of the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences' DinoSketch Contest. 

Kids ages 2 to 18 are invited to submit their drawings through March 16. Winners will be announced on March 23. Each age group (8 and under, 9–13, and 14–18) will have first and second place winners with prizes from the Museum Store. Children can draw, paint or sketch using whatever medium they choose, as long as the drawing is on a standard sheet of paper (8.5”x11”), according to the museum, which has much more information on its website

The contest is inspired by the Raleigh museum's latest exhibit: The World's Largest Dinosaurs. It explores the biology behind this group of giant dinosaurs and how the species survived for millions of years.
