State Spirit Summer Challenge

And the Winner IS . . .

It’s official (and not surprising!) that South Dakota wins this year’s State Spirit Summer Challenge. 🙂 Mount Rushmore is special to our state, because it brings all of YOU to the Black Hills and creates a sense of national unity, no matter how you are inspired by the sculpture.

While South Dakota is the winner, most states made the leaderboard. This is an example of the importance of Mount Rushmore and that it represents so much to our nation at large. See how your state measures up below:

Thank you for showing YOUR spirit this year, and keep the challenge alive to ensure Mount Rushmore’s influence for the future!
