INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. (AP) — Friday is the deadline for entering Voyageurs National Park’s eighth annual Kids Art Contest.

Entries can be dropped off at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center or mailed to Voyageurs National Park.
The contest honors National Park Week. Voyageurs will host an awards ceremony at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center on April 23.
