High school photographers invited to
capture heart of California in contest


California’s essence lies in a variety of images ripe for the taking—from orange trees to palm trees, from beaches to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, from a variety of crops to a diverse population. And now high school students are invited to capture that vision in LegiSchool’s annual photo contest “California Through My Eyes.”

To enter, students are asked to submit an 8x10-inch original photograph, along with an entry form and a 150-word typed essay explaining how their photo depicts what California means to them. The contest’s first place winner will receive $100 and four-runners up will each receive $50.

Eligibility is limited to current high school students. Entries must be postmarked by May 4. Complete details and entry forms are available at

The photo contest is sponsored by LegiSchool, a civic education project of Sacramento State and the State Legislature, which is administered by the University’s Center for California Studies.

For more information, contact the LegiSchool Project at (916) 278-6906 or
