The LegiSchool Project is a civic education collaboration between California State University, Sacramento and the California Legislature, administered by the Center for California Studies.
Students are being asked how they envision California: Farms or mountains? People or prairies? High-rise buildings or wide-open spaces? They are to step behind the camera lens and capture an image that represents California. The photo can be of a person, place or thing.
Entrants are asked to be creative and submit the following:
• One original 8-by-10-inch photograph (color or black and white), printed on photo paper
• An entry label attached to the back, right-hand corner of the photo
• Permission form, signed and initialed
Essays must be 150 words or fewer, explaining why the photo represents California.
The winner will receive $150 and four runners-up will receive $100 each. All entries will remain the property of the LegiSchool Project for the purpose of display.
Mail the entry to: The LegiSchool Project, Center for California Studies, Sacramento State, 6000 J St., Sacramento, 95819-6081
The entry label and permission form can be found at csus.edu/calst/contests.html. Entries must be postmarked by Friday, May 9.
