Montana Governor Judy Martz announced the State Park Poster theme for 2002.
The theme this year will be, "Montana State Parks A symbol of Freedom, Inspiration and Hope." With tragedies like those that took place on September 11th, it is comforting to know that we have many rich resources of recreation in Montana that provide a special place for contemplation and reflection. Parks are a place of unity for families and can provide a place of respite from a troubled world. Visitors often speak of drawing strength from the natural wonders and beauty that surround them when they are in the parks.
Gov. Martz stated that Montanans are blessed with many healing places to turn to in time of need and some of the most outstanding are preserved as Montana State Parks.
The contest is open to any fifth grade student in Montana. Deadline for entries will be Friday, April 5, 2002. Contact Helena.
