Announcing the 2019 Earth Day Photo Contest Winners

Monday, April 22, 2019

Thank you to everyone who entered the 2019 Earth Day Photo Contest! We had many photo submissions in both categories, making this decision especially tough.  We were also blown away by the quality and diversity of the entries -- an equal testament to the skills of our residents and the beauty of our resources.  

Below are the winners as chosen by over 500 vote by the public. We're already looking forward to next year's submissions! If you have a photo you think we could use in the meantime, feel free to submit it through our website, and follow us on Instagram for more shots from across the watershed!

The top 3 winners were chosen in two categories: Landscape & Recreation. First place winners received a $100 gift certificate to The Great Frame Up in Minnetonka.
