The deadline to submit your photos for district is NEXT Friday, February 4th. Please, make sure you have your photos to Willie before 5:00 pm.

You will also need to have a CD of the photos to turn in as well, or you may e-mail them to Willie, or directly to the District office.

You will also need to register with 4-H Online .
It is $5 for the first photo and 50 cents for each photo after that.

Please be sure to read the District Guidelines. You will find them to the right of the blog under "curriculum/resources". If you submitted 4x6 photos for county, you will need to have them printed at a 5x7 or 8x10 for district.

Remember, even if you did not compete at county, you may still compete at district. :-)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Wendy or Willie.

2011 County Photography Results

Hi, Everyone :-)

The photos have been judged and here are the results. I do have the judges forms/comments for each photo, so you may want to look at them before deciding which photos to move on to district, etc. Remember, the deadline for district is not until Feb. 4th, so if you choose to take new photos and enter those you may. Otherwise, just let Willie know you want your photos to move on.

The deadline to turn in photos for District is February 4th. Photos you intend to send to District MUST be in the Extension Office by 5:00 pm that day. Please, remember to e-mail the photo to Willie, or submit a CD along with photos,
