Art Contest Hosted by BLM Colorado

The Bureau of Land Management's Colorado State Office, in partnership with the Public Lands Foundation and the Center of the American West, will host a juried art contest for Colorado high school students to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the General Land Office.  Original Post Here

The art contest is framed around an educational presentation covering the history of the GLO and the BLM and the role the GLO played on the development of the American West. The presentation is designed as a self-guided lesson that will provide background information and inspiration for the contest submissions.

"The General Land Office played a major role in the westward expansion of our country and oversaw the surveying, platting and sale of public lands," said BLM Colorado State Director Helen Hankins.

Artwork may include photography, drawing, graphic design, video, animation, etc. Artists should include a written statement (250-350 words) connecting the artwork to:

The value of public lands.

Your personal experience or connection to public lands.

How public lands are part of your family heritage and the role they play in your future.

All entries should be submitted electronically to [email protected] by May 31. Submissions must be no larger than 5 MB in size.

The Center of the American West will judge the competition and announce the winners by July 20. Winning entries will be displayed at the GLO Symposium/Student Congress Sept. 11-14, and will be featured on the BLM Colorado website.

Prizes will be divided into three categories with one winner in each category:

First place: $500 cash

Second place: $300 cash

Third place: $100 cash
