Wyomingites Encouraged to Enter Photo Contest

CHEYENNE — Wyoming residents are invited to share their pictures of Wyoming life by entering photos in this year’s National Rural Health Day Photo Contest, which is sponsored by the Wyoming Department of Health Office of Rural Health. National Rural Health Day is November 17.

Prizes will be awarded in two categories: “People, Places and Things” and “Landscape and Wildlife.” First place winners in each category will receive $100, with $50 for second place winners.

Photos will be judged by Office of Rural and Frontier Health staff on creativity, originality, photo quality, how well images communicate the concept of rural health and overall appeal.
