Annual National Park Pass Artwork Contest Underway
Park Service encouraging students to submit original drawings that could decorate next year's annual pass
Glacier National Park and the Glacier National Park Conservancy are accepting art submissions from high school students for the annual park pass artwork contest. The winning art will be displayed on the 2014 Glacier National Park annual park pass.

Students are encouraged to submit art that focuses on the National Park Service's 100th anniversary, which is in 2014, and the three iconic cultural resources in Glacier — Lake McDonald Lodge, Sperry Chalet and Granite Park Chalet.

Each entry must include original artwork and will be judged on design and accuracy of a scene that celebrates an experience involving the lodge or the chalets. The deadline to submit artwork is April 12.

Visit the park’s website for more information and an application.

The purpose of the annual pass artwork contest is to improve stewardship and understanding of cultural and natural resources in Glacier National Park, according to park administrators.

The pass featuring the winning artwork will be available in January 2014, and more than 14,000 passes will be issued during the year. The top three winners will receive a gift certificate from the conservancy.

Last year Glacier High School Senior Brian Smith submitted the winning entry. Smith’s image of Grinnel Point towering over Swiftcurrent Lake and the historic Many Glacier Hotel is highlighted on this year’s annual park pass.

Annual Glacier National Park passes are available for $35. Passes are available at park headquarters, staffed entrance stations or by calling the park at 406-888-7800.
