Area residents have until Oct. 31 to submit entries for Lincoln-Way North High School’s Wild About Photography contest.

Entries should capture the beauty and wonder of nature in the Lincoln-Way North/Frankfort Square Park District area.

Please submit your digital entry to outdoor@lw210.org. Only one submission will be accepted per person.

Winners will be announced in January in two categories: one for community participants and one for student participants.

Last year’s winners were amateur photographer Michael McNeil, who submitted a landscape photo he took at Island Prairie, and Lincoln-Way North student Dana Mayfield, who submitted a close-up photo of a berry hanging from a crabapple tree in her backyard.

Their photographs now hang in the main hallway at Lincoln-Way North.

For more information about this year’s Wild About Photography contest, please call 815-534-3014 or visit the district’s prairie project website at http://www.lw210.org/prairieproject/contests.html

I would like to see a community photography contest that exposed our students to the excitment of making things in the United States small scale and large scale. Schools and business need to collaborate on this event and celebrate educated skilled people who create the strength of sustainable long term economic wealth and stability.
