2010 North Carolina 4-H Photography Contest

This year’s new category will be 4-H Family.

Please submit your entries to the Alleghany County Extension Office by May 1, 2010 with completed ENTRY FORM. If we have enough interest we will display your work your work during the month of May prior to sending to Raleigh. Please note that entries for the 2010 contest must be postmarked NO LATER THAN June 8, 2010 to Raleigh and should be original images created from June 2009 to June 2010.

Winning entries on the state level will be displayed at 4-H Congress in July. The purpose of this exhibition is to provide a showcase of 4-H members' photographic accomplishments. After Congress, the winning photos will be displayed at meetings and events throughout the year. Winning entries from past years can be viewed online at

Contest categories this year include our standard "4-H in Action" and "Nature's Beauty" categories, with a new category this year of "4-H Family." Each category will be divided into a Junior (Ages 9-12) and Senior (Ages 13-19) division.

Each youth may submit ONE entry per category. The same image may be entered in more than one category (if it applies) as long as separate copies of the image are provided.
