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 2015 Glacier National Park Annual Park Pass.

Students are encouraged to submit art that focuses on the natural resources protected and preserved in the park. Each entry must include original artwork. Entries will be judged on the use of color, and design and accuracy of a scene that depicts one or more natural resource of the park. The deadline to submit artwork is April 11. Visit the park’s webpage at for more information and an application, or contact the park at 406-888-7800.

The purpose of the annual pass artwork contest is to get students engaged with Glacier National Park, while creating an awareness of stewardship and increase an understanding about resources protected in the park.

The pass featuring the winning artwork will be available in January 2015, and more than 14,000 passes will be issued during the year. The top three winners will receive a gift certificate from the Glacier National Park Conservancy.

Last year Glacier High School Student Valarie Kittle submitted the winning entry. Kittle’s image of the historic Lake McDonald Lodge is highlighted on this year’s annual park pass.

Since some 14,000 of these passes are sold to visitors each year, the winning artwork will have a great audience.

  1. Just got a WordPress recently and was quite surprised to see my artwork on someone else’s blog! Awesome! I wish everyone luck in the contest and thanks for writing about it.

    1. Congratulations on the design and having it selected. I hope a lot of people enter the contest this time and have fun working on the project. I appreciate the work of the park service folks at Glacier for setting up the competition and for sending out news releases we can use to tell others about it.

      Thanks for the visit!
