March 25 - April 16th, 2021


Share your talent and help us make the earth a better place! The Sierra State Parks Foundation announces the return of the Virtual Earth Day Art Contest, which looks to spark the creativity of all those who love the parks of the Lake Tahoe – Donner region.

The contest will run from March 25 until April 16. Winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22. This year’s contest theme is “Recreate Responsibly.” Through art, The Foundation hopes to inform and remind those who visit our state parks to leave nature as they found it and to leave no trace. The great influx of visitors to the Tahoe Basin and the Lake Tahoe – Donner State Parks has highlighted how important it is to protect these precious, public spaces.

The 2021 Virtual Earth Day Art Contest calls all artists and creatives to submit original artwork in the form of drawing, painting, or mixed media that reflects the theme “Recreate Responsibly.” Contest entries can be submitted to the Sierra State Parks Foundation and will be judged by the SSPF Board of Directors. Entries will be evaluated on creativity and theme. This art contest is proudly sponsored by Wild Republic.

All ages are invited to participate in the online competition! There will be one winner in each age division: Pre-K and Kindergarten, Grades 1-3, Grades 4-6, Grades 7-12, and Adults. The winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22. Winners of each division will be sent a prize in the mail. All entries will be on display at the Boatworks Mall at Lake Tahoe in Tahoe City starting April 22.
