The District 11 4-H Program held its 4-H photography contest on March 26, at the Texas AgriLife Extension Office in Victoria County.

The contest is an annual contest that encourages 4-H members to use photography as a meaningful communication tool in their lives and develop skills in composition, light, story line, posing and awareness. 4-H members can choose to participate in the photography contest using either digital or film photographs.

4-H members had to first compete in a county level contest in order to qualify for the District 11 photography contest.

Placing in the District 11 contest were:

Katie Bauer — Blue ribbon, intermediate, natural landscape, color; and third place: intermediate, plant/flora, color.

Andres Gaitan — Fourth place, intermediate, people, color; blue ribbon, intermediate, plant/flora, black and white; and fourth place, intermediate, still life, color.

Chris Duenes — Second place at the county contest, plant/flora, color.

Pre 4-H members are eligible to participate in the county contest. Participating in the pre 4-H category at the county level were Anissa Gaitan: Animals – color.

Senior age 4-H members are eligible to compete in the State 4-H Photography Contest this summer. Bee County 4-H member participating will be Sara Munos, animals, color.
