About the Ripple Effects Photo Contest

The Ripple Effects Photo Contest invites K-12 students in our community to capture images of what water means to them. What is most beautiful about water in our community? What water-related problems do we need to address? How do we use, recreate in, and interact with water? The contest is open to all students in Kentuckiana, including counties on both sides of the Ohio River. Submissions are due by August 3 (one photo per student) and cash prizes will be awarded for the best photographs in four age categories (kindergarten through 2nd grade, 3rd through 5th grade, middle school, and high school). Winning images will once again be displayed at the Kentucky State Fair. For complete rules and registration, go to
