Next year’s state park stickers are now on sale.  And the DNR is taking submissions for the sticker’s artwork for the following year.  

The 2015 state park sticker contest is open to all high school students throughout the state. 

DNR spokesperson Paul Holtan says judges are looking for designs that evoke the Wisconsin outdoors. 

“We want it to be representative of the parks experience.  Whether it’s outdoor activities, wildlife watching, beautiful scenes of the state parks – what they feel is the most important part of visiting our parks.”
