Red Deer County is interested on how youth see things within its borders, through a photo contest where one person could win a digital camera. The county’s 2012 Kid’s Photo Contest invites youth to submit their pictures until Feb. 15, showing their experiences in the municipality. Categories include Where I Live, My Farm, Where I Play, My Favourite Places in the County, and My Family and Friends. Photos submitted could be printed in county publications and website to help promote the area. Select photos will also be put on display at the county office. Prizes will be awarded with a digital camera for the first place entry. A list of rules is available on the county website, www.rdcounty.com. The contest is open to all youth aged 17 or younger. Photos must be taken of areas within the county. Photo submissions, with a completed rules and regulations form, can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available by contacting Anisa Ahmad at 403-350-2150 ext. 272.
