The National Park Service is holding a youth art contest for students in Fayette, Nicholas, Raleigh and Summers counties.

The Youth Arts in the Parks 2016 Appalachian Spring Wildflower Art Contest is open to K-12 students in the four counties.

Tamarack in Beckley will showcase top entries at an art exhibit in April 2016.

The park service says entries must be hand delivered to a contest art receiving station between Feb. 1, 2016, and Feb. 7, 2016.

The contest is part of the New River Gorge Wildflower Weekend. The annual spring event celebrates the region's ecology.
