school photo contest: ‘California Through My Eyes’
High school photographers can share their vision of California by
entering a photo contest titled “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 the Center for California Studies at California State
University, Sacramento and the State Legislature.
Each of the winners and 20 honorable mentions will be displayed
as part of the Center for California Studies’ 15th annual
Envisioning California Conference, to be held Sept. 25-26 at the
Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City. The conference assembles
Californians with broad expertise for wide-ranging talks about what
California is and where it is going.
The selected contest photographs will accompany a conference session
on “The Golden State Captured on Silver,” at which professional
photographers from throughout California will share their images.
To enter, students submit an 8- by 10-inch original photograph along
with the entry form and a 150-word typed essay explaining how their
photo shows what California means to them. Entries are due by Sept.
An entry form and full contest details are available at www.csus.edu/legischool.
