(UNDATED) – Emily Monticue’s picture of her son at Turkey Run State Park took first place in the Activities category in America’s State Parks 2019 Photo Contest, according to Ginger Murphy, state parks deputy director.
The competition was organized by the National Association of State Park Directors and Aspira. The contest is designed to showcase the diversity and beauty inherent in America’s state parks.
Monticue says she and her son love spending time outdoors, and she found the perfect time to snap the shot in the park’s Rocky Hollow.
The photographer won a $500 REI gift card, camping pillow and one-year subscription to Backpacker Magazine.
More than 9,000 images were submitted for the contest in five categories.
