Entry Description
Watch the sand come alive or participate with friends and family at the 17th annual Sand Sculpture Contest at Indiana Dunes State Park, Saturday, July 12.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. CDT on the west end of the pavilion. Judging begins at noon, followed by awards at 1 p.m. Teams wanting a jump start may begin as early as 7 a.m.

This year's theme is "Into the Wild." Sculptures that follow the theme will earn extra points from judges. Prizes will be awarded in two categories, one for teams of children ages 15 and younger and another for groups of fewer than eight people. Observers can vote for their favorite in the "Viewer's Choice Award" between noon and 1 p.m.

"The event keeps growing each year," said Brad Bumgardner, interpretive naturalist. "It’s a neat chance to see some of the creativity that goes into these different designs each year"

Participation is free after paying the standard gate fee of $5 for Indiana vehicles and $10 for out-of-state vehicles. For more information, call the nature center at (219) 926-1390.

Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
