Photo Contest to Commemorate Rainbow Bridge Centennial
Page, AZ – Staff from Rainbow Bridge National Monument today announced that the National Park Service is sponsoring a photo contest to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the national monument. The contest winner will have his or her photo featured on a limited edition poster commemorating the event. Park partners Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas, Antelope Point Holdings, Colorado River Discovery, and the Glen Canyon Natural History Association will also be contributing prizes. Though known to several Native American cultures for generations, Rainbow Bridge was discovered by the outside world on August 14, 1909. Less than a year later, on May 30, 1910, President William Howard Taft declared Rainbow Bridge, the world’s largest known natural bridge, a national monument. The photo contest is one of several events that will be held to commemorate this event. The contest will be open from May 1, 2009 through September 30, 2009.

Entry forms are also available at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area visitor centers.
