Area Winners in Keep Montana Green Contest
The first part of the selection process has been announced in this year's Keep Montana Green poster art contest. The Department of Natural Resources and Conservation sponsored competition for state youngsters picks winners in regional areas of the state in the first judging. This area's judging is done at the Southwestern Land Office in Missoula. The top finishers are then advanced to the state contest, which has added even more prize money to the top artists.
This is the 60th annual poster contest and Keep Montana Green is celebrating its 75th anniversary, according to a news release from Kristin Mortenson.
