Senator Elder Vogel is calling on residents to submit photos capturing the spirit and beauty of the 47th Senatorial District, with the top entries to be featured in his 2017 calendar.
Contestants can submit two photos per category (spring, summer, fall and winter). The top three vote-getters in each group will serve as a featured month in Senator Vogel’s 2017 “Scenes from the 47th Senatorial District Calendar.”
The contest is open to all individuals, children and adults, but photos must have been taken within the boundaries of the 47th District. The contest will remain open for submissions until Aug. 31. Voting will take place from Sept. 6 to 30, with the winners to be announced in October.
“Last year’s Scenes from the 47th Senatorial District photo contest was a resounding success. We received hundreds of pictures that truly showcased the beauty of Beaver, Lawrence, and Butler counties,” Senator Vogel said. “We are indeed fortunate to live in a region with a variety of picturesque areas, many of which take on a whole new aspect with the changing of the seasons. I encourage everyone to send in their best shots and I certainly look forward to seeing all of the photos that will be submitted.”
