Glacier National Park and the Glacier National Park Conservancy announce the winners of the recent annual park pass artwork contest.

Valarie Kittle, a senior at Glacier High School, submitted the winning entry. Her image of the historic Lake McDonald Lodge will be on the 2014 Glacier National Park Annual Park Pass. This pass will be available in January 2014, and approximately 14,000 passes will be issued during the year.

The art contest was open to high school students. The purpose of the contest is to improve stewardship and understanding of cultural and natural resources in the park. The focus of this year's contest was the 100th anniversaries, in 2014, of three iconic cultural resources in the park- Lake McDonald Lodge, Sperry Chalet and Granite Park Chalet.
 
Isabella Ridgeway and Rosalie Tozer, both students at Glacier High School, were recognized for second and third place respectively. All three winners will receive a gift certificate from the conservancy that can be redeemed at any Glacier National Park Conservancy sales outlet, or their on-line store.

Wendy Hill, Glacier National Park Conservancy Executive Director of Products and Retail Sales, said, "Through this art contest, we are creating future stewards, future caretakers of the park, to help ensure the longevity of this national treasure." She added, "And, it's quite an honor to have your art displayed on the annual park pass."

The winning artwork will be available to view on the park's website, www.nps.gov/glac by clicking on the "For Kids" section.

The Glacier National Park Conservancy is an official partner of Glacier National Park. The Conservancy's goal is to generate financial support for the Park through private fundraising and philanthropic activities, and operation of the bookstores within Glacier National Park.
