Just a reminder...

... that the photos will remain at the Jacksonville Public Library until tomorrow (Friday the 20th) at noon. Willie and I will remove them then. After that, you can pick up your ribbons and photos from Willie at the Extension Office. You may also have your judges results if you wish.

Thank you, again, to all who entered your photos. You did a great job. Don't forget to keep taking photos. The holidays are here, and this is a GREAT time to take photos and practice different techniques. District is in March, so you have plenty of time to get more photos for then. :-)

County Results Are In!!!!! :-)

I am sorry that these are being posted late, but I wanted to make sure I had everything finished, and correct before posting.

First, let me say that you ALL did a wonderful job. We have a lot of kids with natural talent for photography. Keep learning, and having fun taking photos!! :-)

OK, the following will be divided up in individual categories, in no particular order. The color ribbon will be listed next to your name. If you would like copies of your judges scores/comments, please let me know. The judges made comments on several of your photos that may be helpful to you.

BTW... the photos will be on display at the Jacksonville Public Library until Friday, November 20th, if you would like to go by and see them.

The photos are up at the Jacksonville Public Library. All I lack is a display sign that says, "Cherokee County 4-H Photography Contest", and that will go up first thing Monday morning. :-)

The judging will last all next week, and the photos will come down on November 16th at noon. As soon as we get the score sheets we will post the winners.

You all did a great job. Several patrons stopped as we were putting them up and had wonderful compliments. Stop by this week and check it out. :-)

Info. on District

GREAT NEWS!! The District photography contest deadline is in March!! :-)

SO, you have until March to take your photos for the District contest. The photos MUST be given to Willie by 5:00 pm March 18, 2010, because he will drive the photos to Overton on the 19th.

The guidelines should be posted next week, but we already have some information, that I want to pass on to you.

1. Entry fee is $5 per person, 50 cents per photo.
2. Eligible photos must have been taken from March '09 - March 2010. So, double check your county submissions. If they were taken BEFORE March '09, they cannot move on to District.
3. The Divisions are the same as county/state with 2 additions.
There will be a District Theme: "Water". Water must be the main focus of your photo in this division.
There is also a Technical Challenge Division: "Sell a Product."

The deadline to enter photos into the State Competition is April 15th. You will need to enter at 4-H online, and your photos must be postmarked by April 15th.

If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me, or give me a call. :-)
