Photo Contest

Mom just told me that I won a photo contest!

It was called “Between Fences” and it went along with a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition that was at the Miner County Rural Life Museum in Howard (my hometown in South Dakota.) Above is the news article about the contest.

I won the adult category with this photo I’d taken when I was back home and fixed fence with Dad. Someone involved in the contest told mom that the judge picked my photo as 1st right away, then had a harder time picking out the 2nd and 3rd places. It’s not a huge prize or lots of fame, but I’m happy!
