Glen Jean, West Virginia, January 16, 2013- Nature is often an inspiration for artist of all ages. Local students can celebrate such creativity through the Youth Arts in the Parks art contest, part of New River Gorge Wildflower Weekend (April 19 - 21). The art work of contest finalists will be showcased at Tamarack in Beckley and on-line in April, helping all in our community see the amazing natural diversity of Appalachian ecology. But the art entry deadline for Youth Arts in the Parks is almost here. So students, the time to finish up your contest entries is now.
