From The Lecturer's Desk: Are Your Entries Ready?

By Marge Bernhardt, CT State Grange Lecturer

  May 9, 2017 --

Time is getting short. Let’s Celebrate and Grange Sunday are coming. Have you taken any good pictures lately? If so, Why not enter them in the photo contest. This contest is open to all Grangers as well as their children and grandchildren. However, only Grange Members may compete at National. There are Six Categories – America The Beautiful; Animals; Grangers In Action; Family Celebrations; Historic Places or Events; and, Antique Vehicles.

The Rules are pretty simple…

• Only prints accepted. No slides in any category.

• Participants may enter all categories but are limited to one entry in each category.

• Entries must have been taken by the participant less than one year prior to the Judging.

• A rigid backing is required for all photographs. No glass or frame is allowed.

• Print may be processed commercially, but it must have been taken by the entrant. Remember, this is a picture you took, not a picture of you.

• Size of backing: No smaller than 4” x 6” or larger than 11” x 14”.

• Name, Category, Grange and Number must be placed on the back.

• Youth Entries (Age 14 and under) will be judged separately.

• Judging: Photos will be judged at Cheshire Grange Hall on Sat. June 10th. Entries may be mailed or given to the State Lecturer ahead of time, or brought to Cheshire Grange Hall between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. the day of the judging.

On Sunday, June 11th we will have our annual “Talent” and “A Number” judging. All entries go directly to the State judging this year. Your Pomona Lecturer should be contacting you soon to see what you have for entries.

See you around the State.
