The National Park Service is sponsoring the Haunting in the Hills Student Art Contest to celebrate the creative spirit of the youth in our gateway communities and the inspiration and legacy of the Big South Fork. Student artwork will be featured in an exhibit at the Bandy Creek Education Center, and there will be a special reception on Saturday, November 10, 2012, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time). The art contest is open to all 5th grade students attending any school associated with one of the gateway community school districts near Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. The grand prize winner's artwork will also be featured on the cover of a CD showcasing stories from this past year's Storytelling Festival.
Did You Know?
In the 1960's Congress requested the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of damming the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River just above the Devils Jump Rapid to create another reservoir. Had that happened Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area would never have existed.
