WEST GLACIER, MONT. –Glacier National Park and Glacier Association announce the winners of the recent postcard and annual park pass artwork contest. The contest was announced in the fall to promote learning about the park and the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem.

Glacier National Park Superintendent Chas Cartwright said, “We are pleased to share and showcase the artwork of these students. Their images reflect the beauty of the park.”

Brian Smith, a senior at Glacier High School, submitted the winning entry in the high school category. His image of Grinnel Point towering over Swiftcurrent Lake and the historic Many Glacier Hotel will be on the 2013 Glacier National Park Annual Park Pass. This pass will be available in January 2013, and approximately 14,000 passes will be issued during the year. The top three winners in the high school category will receive a gift certificate from the association that can be redeemed at any Glacier Association sales outlet, or their on-line store.

Postcards available to the public will feature the first-place winning artwork in three categories from the first through eighth grade entries. The postcards will be available free of charge at Glacier Association bookstores within the park and at the association’s headquarters at the historic depot in West Glacier. First and second place winners will receive a gift certificate and the third place winners will receive a book from the association.

Wendy Hill, Glacier Association Executive Director, said, “Through this art contest, we are creating future stewards, future caretakers of the park, to help ensure the longevity of this national treasure.” Hill said that this is the fourth year for the contest, but the first year that winning art will be displayed on the annual park pass.
