As part of Iowa State Extension Week, the Marion County Extension Office has announced the return of the Marion County Photo Contest. The contest began last year as a way to show the beauty of Marion County.
Karen Ackley, with the Extension Office, says that the contest is open to amateur photographers. There are two different divisions based on age, and three different photo categories – scenic, wildlife, and people. Ackley reminds people that all photos must be taken in Marion County. The top three photos in each category will be selected for exhibition throughout the county in the year following the contest and will also be used for the 2013 County Calendar. For more details, call the Extension Office at 842-2014.
