In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the park, the 75 Reasons to Visit Shenandoah National Park and the Surrounding Communities contest was launched this week. The contest consists of a game of questions about the park and its neighboring communities, and will provide an opportunity for visitors and residents alike to participate in the anniversary celebration, learn more about the area, and win valuable prizes.
Participants are encouraged to find answers to these questions by visiting the areas, searching the community and park websites, and contacting visitor centers.
A brochure was designed containing 75 questions about the park and the surrounding counties. To participate in the game, answer the questions, and then return the form to the park by November 1, 2011.
All participants submitting correctly completed entry forms will receive a certificate of participation, a specially designed decal, and will qualify for prize drawings in November. The Grand Prize will include a Shenandoah National Park Vacation Package for two at Skyland Resort, a limited edition print of the park signed and numbered by artist Kevin Adams, and a biplane ride for two over the Shenandoah Valley and Piedmont of Virginia. Sixteen additional prize packages will also be awarded.
