To the Editor:
The Dec. 7 deadline to enter the Champlain Area Trails Photo and Caption Contest is approaching. You can submit photos taken in New York’s Champlain Valley in any or all of the three following categories, “Hiking the trails,” “Scenic and nature,” and “Towns and villages.” Thanks to a grant from the J.C. Kellogg Foundation, we can award first place prizes of $150 in each category and “Peoples’ Choice Prizes” of $100 for the most on-line votes in each category.
Please consider entering. Tell your friends, family, and students about this opportunity. All you need to do is look through pictures you’ve taken or go out and take some more. Then send them to the CATS website (www.champlainareatrails.com) along with a caption about each picture—who’s in it, where it is, what happened that you took the picture, etc. We’ll put them on our website, announce the winners at year’s end, and use them to increase tourism here. Because people research vacations online, your pictures will help promote our local economies. And that makes everyone a winner.
