Photo Contest

The Amateur Photography Contest helped raise awareness about
conservation while expanding our collection of photos.
The competition was open to all non-professional photographers.  Photographers were divided into two divisions --adult (18 years or older) and youth (17 years and younger), so all ages of photographers were welcome. A $25 prize was awarded for each first place entry in each category per division.  Photos must have been taken within the boundaries of Muskingum County and was judged based on relevance to conservation, creativity, photographic quality and impact.
