Name the Ferry!
Alaska Class Ferry Project
Name the Ferry Essay Contest!
By state law, state ferries are named after Alaska glaciers. Students in 6th-12th grade are invited to submit a name for one of two new state ferries and provide supporting evidence in an essay of 400 to 800 words. The content should include scientific and historical information. One ferry will be named by a student from grades 6 to 8, and the other ferry will be named by a student from grades 9 to 12.
The two winning students will receive an award certificate in their classroom presented by the Governor, Lt. Governor, or Commissioner of DOT&PF. The winning essay will be framed and displayed on the ferry it names. Essays are due March 15.
