POMEROY — The Leading Creek Watershed Group and the Meigs Soil and Water Conservation District are accepting entries for their ninth amateur photo contest.
This year’s theme is “Water and You.” The purpose of this year’s theme is to capture why local watersheds are special to you.
This contest is open to Meigs County residents of all ages. Photos must be taken within Meigs County and relate to the theme. There is a limit of one photo submission per person. Black and white or color will be accepted. Photos can be emailed or printed off and submitted. For printed photos, please limit the size to 5-by-7-inches.
All photos are welcome, current or historical, and will be displayed at the Meigs SWCD office, but only three winners will be chosen for the cash prizes.
Photos will be judged by a panel of local experts and residents. Submissions must be turned in to the Meigs SWCD office by Friday, April 12. Photos can be delivered to the Meigs SWCD office at 113 East Memorial Drive, Suite D in Pomeroy (on the hill across from the Veterans Memorial Hospital building) in person or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winners will be announced at the annual Leading Creek Stream Sweep, which will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, at Jim Vennari Park in Rutland. The top three photos will also be displayed at the Meigs SWCD booth during the 2013 Meigs County Fair and at the Meigs SWCD’s 2013 Annual Banquet.
