4-H Photography Show
4-H Photo Show is on!
We’ll be doing a “virtual” Photo Show this year. Just like your self-portrait challenge, you will submit your images online, and then judging will occur online via a Zoom meeting with a judge. We will hand out ribbons after judging, and there will be an online gallery where you and others can view the “Show.” The only difference this year is that images will not be on display at the Holter, and you don’t have to pay to frame your photo!
