The Marion County Photo Contest deadline is coming up. The contest began in 2011 as a way to show the county’s beauty. Marion County Extension Specialist Karen Ackley 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. A number of photos will be selected for a calendar next year. For more details, call the Extension Office at 842-2014. The deadline for submission is Friday, June 7th.
