Youth Arts in the Parks Appalachian Spring Wildflower Art Contest
Youth Arts in the Parks is a student competition that celebrates ecology through art! Through this program and the April art exhibit at Tamarack and online, students have the opportunity as community leaders to raise awareness of Appalachia’s natural diversity and parks. Their works inspire community connections to local ecology and outdoor stewardship. Participants may also have the opportunity to explore the business of art and its role in economic development.
The Youth Arts in the Parks program is part of spring nature event that celebrates the southern West Virginia’s diverse ecology. New River Gorge National River, Tamarack, and several West Virginia state parks partner to host this public event in April and May. This year’s festivities will feature new programs and tips to help each of us discover more nature outdoors and online.
Image submission for the 2021 contest is from January 2 to February 8, 2021.
