Normally, we wouldn't be making a call for bugs here at IREC, but this call is different! We would like all of you photo bugs to enter the Siskiyou County Centennial Photography Contest. Please read the following details, and get your photos in by July 15. Winners will be announced at the IREC Field Day on August 13.
The University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) of Siskiyou County and the Intermountain Research and Extension Center (IREC) announce the 2014 UC Cooperative Extension centennial photo contest. University of California, Agriculture and Natural Resources celebrates 100 years of UC Cooperative Extension researchers and educators living and working in communities to solve economic, agricultural, natural resource, youth development, and nutrition issues.
Water/Irrigation/Drought-Photos should cover the following topics: Natural water sources, water distribution, irrigation practices and equipment, drought impact or any on farm use of water. All photos should show the impact of water in everyday agricultural practices.
4-H in Action- Photos should highlight the many aspects of the 4-H program telling the story of the volunteers and youth in action. These photos should tell a story of how 4-H volunteers and members interact with the other youth and adult organizations, communities, and the media within the scope of 4-H work.
Working on the Farm or Ranch-Photos should cover the following topics: planting, harvesting, animal care, farm labor, and working with machinery or tools. These photos should show action. All photos must show correct and safe practices around the farm or ranch.
My Scenic Farm or Ranch-Photos should be visually appealing and can cover a variety of topics including, but not limited to: farm/ranch house, barn, crops, farm animals and landscapes. People may be present in the photo, but should not be the main focus. We want to see what agriculture looks like through your eyes!
