There is an image of stately cypress trees tinseled with Spanish moss, evoking thoughts of a slow-moving pirogue cutting through swampy waters. In another picture, a young photographer captures the sun gleaming through the star-studded blue field of the U.S. flag rippling in the breeze.
They are two of the pictures that recently earned members of the Sunray 4-H Community Club top honors at the 2015 Panhandle District 1 4-H Photography Contest. In all, the youth brought home five 1st places, a 2nd place and a Judge’s Award, Misti Ivins of the Moore County 4-H reported.
About 100 4-H youth competed in the event which was designed to “attain a broad knowledge of the 4-H project and related activities as to the way they improve family and community life.”
