In celebration of the National Park Service Centennial, Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area hosted an art contest for fourth grade students in the surrounding school systems of McCreary and Wayne counties in Kentucky and Scott, Fentress, Morgan, and Pickett counties in Tennessee.

Seventy students participated in the program and each received their Every Kid in a Park pass, which allows for free entry for them and their families to more than 2,000 federally managed lands and waters nationwide for an entire year starting September 1, 2015.

All artwork was displayed at the 16th annual Spring Planting and Music Festival, where visitors voted for their favorite drawings. The “People’s Choice”. Award winning artwork remains on display at Bandy Creek Visitor Center, and may also be viewed on the Big South Fork NRRA Facebook album here:
