The Paint Mines Interpretive Park

Last Saturday on October 3rd, the Colorado Times successfully hosted its 20th year anniversary “Travel Essay” contest award ceremony in the city of Aurora. Under the theme ‘Beautiful places to travel in Colorado,’ many applicants shared their wonderful travel stories and photos. Some introduced hidden gem places in Colorado, great places to go fishing or camping, and even various Colorado outdoor activities.


Participants not only submitted their travel essays but also pictures, which allowed judges to evaluate each writing piece with keen observation. Colorado Times presented a $1,000 cash prize, vouchers and certificate of award to the 1st prize winner Kate Jung, who carefully elaborated her fascinating travel story in Paint Mines Interpretive Park, located about 30 miles east of Colorado Springs by the town of Calhan. “It was such a meaningful opportunity for me to revisit my traveling memories in Colorado and share with others,” said Jung.


In addition to Kate Jung receiving a $1,000 cash prize, the 2nd prize winner Ducksung Kwon also received a $500 cash prize along with souvenirs and certificate of award. His essay ‘Colorful Colorado! Wonderful My Life!’ vividly described various travel attractions in Colorado such as Cherry Creek State Park, Gateway Mesa open space, Castle Rock Park, and Garden of Gods in Colorado Springs.

Our team hopes that this contest encourages everyone to gain positive energy to visit wonderful travel destinations in Colorado during this hard time.”
