Next Calendar Contest To Feature Gardens
Have you seen a beautiful garden in Missouri? If so, take a picture and enter it in the Missouri Lottery’s 2008 calendar photo contest themed "Missouri Gardens." If your entry is selected for the cover, you will win $500. If your entry is chosen to illustrate one of the 12 months, you will win $100 worth of Scratchers tickets. All 13 winners will also receive a calendar and name recognition
"The photos submitted in the past have been stunning," said Jennifer Kempker, promotions manager for the Missouri Lottery. "The 2007 calendar theme was Missouri’s waterways, and those photos are amazing. Go to molottery.com to see them."
Kempker noted that photos entered for the 2008 contest should be organic in nature - plants and other forms of nature.
"We’re hoping to get pictures of several kinds of gardens around the state - public, private, large, small, vegetable, flower, rock, herb, botanical, winter and window box," Kempker said. "Remember to think about the different seasons throughout the year. They can make great calendar photos."
The Missouri Lottery’s annual calendar is distributed to Lottery retailers, winners and made available for purchase to players at molottery.com.
The deadline to enter this contest is June 29, 2007.
