Win a Belize Vacation at Chaa Creek with their Art Competition!

by Carolee Chanona

The Lodge at Chaa Creek understands how challenging ‘cooped up indoors’ can be. As one of Belize’s premier eco-resorts with a 400-acre nature reserve, they love the outdoors. Especially, Belize’s wildlife. However, with the current global pandemic, staying home to #flattenthecurve is the most important thing one can do. How about a friendly art competition to add a little excitement? The Lodge at Chaa Creek is offering 3 grand prizes for their ‘Color Belize’ Art Competition, including a 3-night vacation for a family of four.

Color Belize Art Competition Prizes:

  • 1st Place – Three days and three nights for a family of 4, plus guided tours to Chaa Creek’s Belize Natural History Museum and Butterfly Farm, their Maya Medicinal Plant Trail, early morning birding on the property, canoeing, and tubing along the Macal River, and much more.
  • 2nd Place – Two days and two nights for a family of 4, with the same choice of activities as 1st place.

3rd Place – Chaa Creek tee-shirts and their signed artwork hung alongside 1st and 2nd place winners on a special display at The Lodge at Chaa Creek


This art competition is a chance to showcase your favorite Belizean animal(s) to show the world! Draw, paint, sketch, or use whatever medium you like to capture the look and feel of any creature you choose. However, the animal must be native to Belize and fit on a canvas or art sheet measuring 8.5 inches by 11 inches. And remember, you can enter as many times as you’d like! The deadline for all entries is July 15th, 2020. Entrants must be between the ages of 7 and 14 years old.

Chaa Creek’s art competition is open to everyone, and the age of technology has made it easy! Email a copy of your artwork (hold on to the original if you win) to [email protected]. In the subject line, put “Color Belize Art Competition”, and include the following:
