Wyomingites Invited to Enter Rural Health Photo Contest

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

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

Prizes will be awarded in two categories: “People, Places and Things” and “Landscape and Wildlife.” First place winners in each category will receive $125 gift cards, with $75 gift cards for second place winners.
