Will You Be the 2020 ABA Young Birder of the Year?

Do you never leave the house without your binoculars? Even indoors, are birds always on your mind? How would you like to stretch and grow your birding skills under the guidance of some of the most respected birders in North America and have a lot of fun in the process? If you are age 10 to 18 years old and enjoy any or all aspects of birding, then the ABA Young Birder of the Year Contest is for you!

There are five modules in the contest. Two are major – Field Notebook and the Conservation/Community Leadership modules, the other three are supporting – Illustration, Writing, and Photography. Contestants choose from those five modules to customize the contest to fit their own talents and interests.

Winners of each module receive great prizes, and overall winners receive Leica Trinovid binoculars thanks to our ABA Young Birder Legacy Sponsor, Leica Sports Optics. 


The contest runs from April 15 through October 1, 2019. Any and all works submitted for the contest must be started and completed between those dates. Submitted materials are due by October 1, 2019.
