Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area invites students in the surrounding school systems of McCreary and Wayne counties in Kentucky and Scott, Fentress, Morgan, and Pickett counties in Tennessee to earn their Every Kid in a Park pass.

As part of the commitment to protect our nation’s unique outdoor spaces and ensure that every American has the opportunity to visit and enjoy them, the Every Kid in a Park initiative allows fourth graders nationwide to go to and obtain a pass for free entry for them and their families to more than 2,000 federally managed lands and waters nationwide for an entire year.

To enter, students may complete any activity to learn about Big South Fork NRRA. On an 8½ x 11” sheet of white paper or cardstock, draw a picture of something they learned about.  Artwork can be completed using paint, crayon, marker, color pencil, or pencil. Then visit and print a voucher for a free pass. Submit entries of artwork along with the voucher to the park by April 2, 2018.

Entries may be dropped off at or mailed:
Big South Fork NRRA
4564 Leatherwood Road
Oneida, Tennessee 37841
Attn: 4th Grade Art Contest

Entries will be displayed during the 18th annual Spring Planting and Music Festival on April 28, 2018, where visitors may vote on their favorites for “People’s Choice Award." All fourth grade students submitting an entry will earn an Every Kid in a Park pass!
