Through Sept. 18, the Forest Service is accepting the writings of students who wish to participate in the Forest Service’s Wilderness Writings Challenge.

Submit writings online at the Forest Service’s Northern Region website, where participants will find the rules of engagement. The first 50 writers to submit will receive a poster created by Monte Dolack which commemorates the Wilderness Act’s 50th anniversary.
