This year’s new category will be “4-H Family.” Participants can submit their entries to the Brunswick County 4-H office now through Tuesday, June 1, 2010. Winning entries will be displayed at 4-H Congress in July. The purpose of this exhibition is to provide a showcase of 4-H members’ photographic accomplishments. After Congress, the winning photos will be displayed at meetings and events throughout the year. Winning entries from past years can be viewed online at http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/agcomm/4-HPhoto/index.html
If you have an interest in photography, represent your county in this year’s exhibit. Please note that entries should be original images created from June 2009 to June 2010. Contest categories this year include our standard “4-H in Action” and “Nature’s Beauty” categories, with a new category this year of “4-H Family.” Each category will be divided into a Junior (Ages 9-12) and Senior (Ages 13-19) division.
We will continue to use an entry form with personal biographical data. This entry form must accompany each photo entered. In addition to assisting with the judging process, this information may be used by 4-H agents for news stories about their winning 4-H exhibitors. Copies will be made of the winning entries and all original materials will be returned to the counties by September 2010.
