The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District is now accepting submissions for its 6th annual photo contest for youth and adults who reside in Hamilton County. Each age division has two categories – Fireflies and Other Beneficial Insects, and The White River. Digital files must be submitted by July 5.

“Insects, especially lightning bugs do so much for our soil. It’s time to give them the spotlight, or photo lenses in this case. We are excited to see all the great photo entries of beneficial insects and of our great asset the White River this year!”, said Ginger Davis, HCSWCD Administrator. For information on beneficial insects, please visit http://npic.orst.edu/envir/beneficial/index.html

Photo entries will be displayed at the 4-H Fair July 18 through July 22. Winners in each of the categories will receive $50.
