Visitors to Schmeeckle Reserve who are inspired to take photographs, create art, or write about the natural area are invited to submit their work in the contest.

The Friends hosts the contest to raise awareness of the Reserve and the friends group, which supports the natural area. Winners in each category are honored at a reception each year at the Portage County Public Library in downtown Stevens Point. First-place winners also receive a $25 gift certificate to the Browse Shop, a gift shop in the Schmeeckle Reserve Visitor Center that features natural and cultural gifts.

Submissions must be accompanied by a 75-100 word statement describing how the entry was inspired by time spent in Schmeeckle Reserve.

Entries will be on display during the month of December at the library, and after that in the meeting room at the Schmeeckle Reserve Visitor Center.
