Idaho Day Student Contests

Each year the Bonneville County Heritage Association (BCHA) sponsors several student contests to celebrate Idaho Day (the anniversary of the day President Abraham Lincoln created the Idaho Territory in 1863). All Bonneville County students in grades 4 and 7-12 are invited to participate. A variety of contests are offered (e.g., map drawing, sculpting, painting, photography, handwriting, essays, poetry, and song writing) and students may enter as many contests as they desire. The theme for this year’s contests is “Transportation in Idaho”.

Cash prizes are awarded to all first-place winners and prizes are given to second and third place winners as well. All contest entries are displayed during the BCHA’s annual Idaho Day Celebration held on March 4th. All contest winners (1st-3rd place) will be invited to the celebration where they will be recognized.

To enter a contest, submit the entry to Todd Brown at the Idaho Falls School District Administration building, 690 John Adams Parkway, any time before 5:00 p.m., January 26, 2024. Please include the student’s name, grade, school (if applicable), contest entered, and phone number on the back of the entry or on an index card accompanying the entry. Entries will be returned to students following the Idaho Day Celebration.
