Photography Contest Winners Announced!

The recent Lenticels in the Lens photography contest prompted many photographers to hit the trails with cameras in hand!  Submissions of photos of lenticels (pore-like structures often seen on the bark of trees) were received in three age categories, and the photos were judged by a panel of experts, including scientists, naturalists, and educators from Clemson University, the University of South Carolina, and the Richland County Master Gardeners Association.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the following WINNERS:

Youth Winner: Joshua Venegas, age 9

 Youth Honorable Mention:  Jimmy Parrott, age 10

Teen Winner:  Anna Fowler, age 18
Photo from Greenville, SC

Teen Honorable Mention:  Noel Venegas, age 14
Photo from Chapin, SC

Adult Winner:  April Kelley
Photo from Columbia, SC

Congratulations!  Each winner will receive a field guide to trees, and all submissions will be featured in a gallery on the opening day of the Sandhill Farmers Market (May 3, 2-7 pm) and, subsequently, on the bulletin board in the Carolina Children's Garden.

Stay tuned for details about our next contest!
