Kansas Historical Society accepting entries for student photo contest

Kansas students could win an iPad or a Kindle for submitting their photography to the Kansas Historical Society’s annual photo contest.

Students from 1st through 12th grades are invited to submit up to five photographs to the contest that “tell a story about going to school in Kansas,” according to the Historical Society’s website. The photos must be taken by the student and be from 2019.

The first-place winners in each grade level will receive iPads and the second-place winners will receive Kindles, the website said. Winners will also be invited to be part of Kansas Day observances at the Kansas State Capitol on Jan. 29, 2020.

The deadline for entries is Dec. 15. Entries can be emailed to kshs.information@ks.gov or submitted online.
