2016 Annual Pass Artwork Contest
Glacier National Park and the Glacier National Park Conservancy are accepting art submissions from sixth through twelfth grade students for the annual park pass artwork contest. The winning art will be displayed on the 2016 Glacier National Park Annual Park Pass.
Eileen Crusta, a 10th grade homeschool student, submitted last year's winning entry. Her image of Bowman Lake and wildlife is on the 2015 annual park pass. Ryan Kelly, seventh grade student at St. Matthews School, and Ryann Thomas, sixth grade student at C.R. Anderson Middle School, were recognized for second and third place respectively. Alanna Santa, also a seventh grade student at St. Matthews School received honorable mention. Their artwork can be viewed on our Flickr site.
Mark Preiss, Glacier National Park Conservancy President and CEO, said, "This art contest is a great way for students to connect with Glacier and showcase their artistic talents." He added, "We received dozens of submissions, each reflecting different interpretations of why Glacier matters and what it offers to each of us every day."
