Dark Sky Poster Contest Winners Announced

June 28, 2023

The week of April 15-22, Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust sponsored daily events celebrating International Dark Sky Week encouraging our community to “Discover the Night!” The Discover the Night Poster Contest was for all students through grade 9 in the Rangeley Lakes Region. Submissions were displayed at businesses along Main Street in Rangeley.

The announcement of the winners was delayed due to absences due to school vacation. RLHT and the RLRS art teachers waited for the end of the year to announce the winners.


Winners were awarded $50 for first and $25 for second choice for both the 7th and 9th grades, with a tie for second place in seventh grade.


Thank you to RLRS Art Teacher Sonja Johnson, who shared “Saving the Dark” with students and made this possible.
