High school photo contest: 'California Through My Eyes'

High school photographers can share their vision of California by entering the LegiSchool Project's annual photo contest "California Through My Eyes." The contest's first-place winner will receive $100 and four runners-up will each receive $50.

The contest is sponsored by the LegiSchool Project, a civic education program of Sacramento State's Center for California Studies and the State Legislature.

Each of the winning entries and 20 honorable mentions will be displayed as part of the Center for California Studies' 17th annual Envisioning California Conference, to be held Sept. 22-23 at the Marriott Hotel in Woodland Hills.

To enter, students must submit an 8- by 10-inch original photograph along with an entry form and a 150-word typed essay explaining how their photo shows what California means to them. Eligibility is limited to current high school students including 2005 graduates. Entries must be postmarked by Sept. 12.
