Brad Traver, Superintendent of Bandelier National Monument announced today, “Bandelier is hosting a climate friendly park logo contest for kids up to age 14. The design of the logo should relate to the idea of Bandelier National Monument’s staff and visitors working together to make the park as climate friendly as possible and/or why this is important for the future.”
“We will be using this logo to identify all climate friendly products and activities in the park,” said Lynne Dominy, Bandelier’s Chief of Interpretation. “It will be made into magnets and stickers for electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles, recycling bins, etc. It will be made into pins to be worn by staff, volunteers, and visitors that have chosen to participate in the “Do Your Part for Climate Friendly Parks” program on the park website. Basically it will be used to showcase all of our efforts to be a Climate Friendly Park.”
“If your children want to participate, we encourage you to follow our guidelines and to submit the artwork as soon as possible. The submission deadline is July 15, 2008,” added Dominy. “The winning entry will receive $100 from Western National Park Association and an annual Bandelier Park Pass ($25 value). The child will also have a photo opportunity when the winner is announced which will be press released to the surrounding newspapers and radio stations.”
