The general public will have until May 6 to nominate their favorite North Carolina natural wonders for consideration in the contest. Then, an expert panel, which includes Asheville Citizen-Times editor Karen Chávez, will narrow down the nominations to a group of finalists. Popular vote online will determine “North Carolina’s 10 Natural Wonders.”
As an added bonus, prizes from vendors across North Carolina, including fine art, outdoors equipment and music, will be awarded to participants each weekday of the contest. The grand prize will be awarded on May 18th when the winners are announced.
The contest is part of Land for Tomorrow’s effort to highlight past generations’ conservation successes and urge North Carolina lawmakers to continue supporting conservation in the state.
