Grab your Junior Ranger and ask them to write an “essay” on how they would describe our national parks to someone who’s never been before, if you were a National Park Ranger for a day. With these gorgeous natural wonders, they shouldn’t have a problem coming up with tons of things to say. Essays must be no more than 500 words and winners will be selected based on originality, clarity and effectiveness of style and organization. All children must have parental or guardian permission to enter and must be between 9 and 12 years of age. Entries must be submitted by March 31, 2010. All essays are submitted at http://www.nationalparks.org/connect/essay-contest/.

Prizes:

  • The First Prize Winner will receive a $200 Merrell gift certificate, an Olympus camera, and an America the Beautiful pass to all of America’s recreation lands.
  • The Second Prize Winner will receive a $100 Merrell gift certificate, and Olympus camera, and an America the Beautiful pass to all of America’s recreation lands.
  • The Third Prize winner will receive a $50 Merrell gift certificate, an Olympus camera, and an America the Beautiful pass to all of America’s recreation lands.
  • Honorable mentions will also receive an America the Beautiful pass to all of America’s recreation lands.

Good luck and we hope a Trekaroo family wins! We’re actually working on launching content for 14 of the largest national parks before summer hits, so keep an eye out.
