Two Houston County residents place in national photo contest

Excellent photography, as we know, can communicate volumes. Two Houston County individuals recently participated in the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) & NACD Auxiliary Photo Contest. The annual contest is open to all amateur photographers residing in the U.S. or its territories. Each contestant is given the opportunity to enter up to five photos per year that fall within one of four categories: Conservation Practices, Close-up Conservation, Conservation in Action, or Agriculture and Conservation Across America.

Joni Mehus of rural Spring Grove, MN submitted an entry in the adult division of the Ag/Conservation Across America category. Karalee Christensen, an 8th grader, from rural Houston, MN submitted her photo in the youth division of the Conservation in Action category.

Joni and Karalee’s photos were judged on technical merit (sharpness/clarity, properly exposed, and whether the photo is well-framed) and composition (imagination and creativity).

Cash prizes were awarded to the top two winners of each category and age division. Karalee Christensen, daughter of Al & Karen Christensen, placed second in the youth division of the Conservation in Action category. Joni Mehus placed second in the adult division of the Ag/Conservation Across America category.

Joni Mehus, Spring Grove, MN 2nd Place Adult Division, Ag/Conservation Across America category.

 

 Karaleen Christensen, Houston, MN 2nd Place Youth Division, Conservation in Action.
