The mountains are calling and I must [know childhood icon Bill Nye acknowledges my existence]

Ive been selected as a Finalist for the National Park Service’s “Find Your Park: The Centennial Project” contest! Now, I need you to vote for my entryFill out the ballot here(Winners get to attend the NPS’ 100th birthday celebration, have people like Bill Nye the Science Guy—whose theme song was my ringtone for 5 years until I got a smartphone—turn their stories into a project, and more.)

(What I’d submitted: Inspired by my trip to Denali National Park in 2002, I drew the above when I was 15. Titled Land of the Midnight Sun, it was my first attempt at using oil pastels. My high school eventually purchased the drawing from me, and it’s still a part of their permanent art collection. Not bad for a piece in a new medium.)

Voting ends October 16 at 5pm CST. [Update: It’s been extended to Oct. 19, same time.] The limit is “1 vote per person, per email address, per day.” So vote everyday with all your addresses for the next couple weeks!

Spread the word. Thank you!

[Update 2: So, uh, I won.]
