2015 All Athens County Photo Contest

Have you ever witnessed a special moment, and with a camera and just the right light, captured it all? Good photographs can strengthen an opportunity to teach, inspire, record special events or history and perhaps just reveal the spectacular beauty of a farm, woods or wetland. To recognize individuals who use this tool effectively and creatively, the Athens Soil and Water Conservation District will again host its annual All Athens County Photo Contest in 2015.
