Sixty-six entries vied for cash prizes in this year’s Chase County Fair photography contest.
Contest coordinator Sheri Clevenger said the entries for this popular contest continue to grow. In fact, there were so many in the color scenic division this year, judges decided to split the division into two parts.
Best of Show went to Lorilee Sis of Imperial with her photo of a pink rose with water droplets.
First through fourth places in nine divisions were awarded cash prizes, with first winning $40, second $30, third $20 and fourth $10. The Best of Show received $75.
This is the fifth year for the contest, which is sponsored by Fine Things Jewelry & Gifts, Chase 3000, Prairie Dental Center and Johnson Publications, Inc.
