The Big River Journey Art Contest artwork is judged in four categories:
- The Mighty Mississippi
- Caring for the River
- Big River Journey
- Journey to the Falls
In each category there are four winners, including a grand prize winner. Occasionally, there may also be honorable mentions. The Big River Art Contest occurs annually, with entries due and winners chosen near to the end of the school year. Contest and eligibility rules are found on our website.
Winning artwork from last year's contest is currently on display at the Mississippi River Visitor Center in the Science Museum of Minnesota, 120 West Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul. Winning artwork from previous years is displayed at other visitor centers throughout the park. Call Brian Goodspeed, 651-293-8414 (or e-mail him) for more information.
