MADISON - The 2021 Wisconsin State Park admission sticker will for the first time feature a winter image. It was designed by Emma Dzurbanova, a junior foreign exchange student from the Czech Republic, who is enrolled at Rice Lake High School.
The winning design will be printed on state park and forest annual vehicle admission stickers and will be displayed on more than 300,000 vehicles.
It is chosen through a statewide contest.
The design contest, sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, is open to all high school age students attending public, private or parochial schools or home schooled in Wisconsin.
Dzurbanova's design features a cross-country skier heading down a trail. She will receive an engraved plaque
and a 2021 annual vehicle admission sticker featuring her design when stickers become available in December.
Second place was won by Abigail Tessmer, Arrowhead High School, whose entry depicted an image of the night sky, and third place was won by Mason Wageman of Appleton North High School, whose design featured a person lounging next to a lake in a hammock.
Honorable Mention went to:
Kallie Wagner, Antigo High School
Maria Graziano, Slinger High School
Brianna Lusk, Cedarburg High School
Kate Seymour, Oconomowoc High School
Greta Marquardt, Bay Port High School
Ethan Nighbor, Waupun High School
Logan Neuendorf, Beaver Dam High School
The vehicle admission stickers provide access to more than 60 state park, forest and recreation area properties across Wisconsin. The stickers are required on all motor vehicles stopping in state parks and recreation areas. Some state forest and trail parking areas also require a sticker.
