Entries may include personal essays, poetry, photographs, artwork, or other information that is written or visual. The Redd Center is offering cash prizes ranging from $5 to $100 for the best entries. A grand prize of $300 will also be awarded, according to a news release from the group. Judging will be in three age categories: children (age 8 to 12), young adults (age 13-17), and adults.
Entries should describe an experience on the public lands in San Juan County.
Entries will be accepted in two general categories – written and visual. Subgroups such as poetry, history, personal essay may be created as the number of written entries requires, officials said. The subcategories for visual are artwork and photographs.
