River Song Contest

Larry Long, "a true American troubador," has generously donated one of his favorite river ballads, "Blue Highway*," to the Rivers of Life Mississippi Adventure. Now, your students can join Larry in song.

Here's how the contest works:

We'll send the lyrics to Larry, and he'll choose his favorites. Winning lyrics will be performed by Larry on the upcoming Audubon Ark river trip, in October of 2000.

Become part of river history! Get on the "Blue Highway."
