Students Asked to Submit Photo Essays About Their Views of Covington for Bicentennial

COV200, the group charged with managing the City of Covington’s bicentennial celebration, wants local students to share their view of Covington’s history. The Cultural & Education Committee along with the Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center are organizing Celebrating Covington’s Past, Present, and Future, a photo essay contest for students of all ages.

Students in and around Covington are asked to take a photograph of something in Covington representing the topic of their essay. Essays are broken into four categories (primary, intermediate, secondary, and college), with age appropriate topics and requirements. Entries will be judged on creativity, visual appeal, unique approach, presentation, and originality.

“COV200 is a celebration of the pride, progress, and future growth of our city,” said Ray Kingsbury, Executive Director of the Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center. “The goal of this photo essay contest is to get students involved in this celebration and to let the public hear the voices and thoughts of our younger generations in a creative way.”

Winners will receive an award and be invited to present their photo-essay in a brief presentation at the Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center. Second and third place winners will also receive a prize and be recognized during the ceremony. All competition participants will receive a certificate of recognition and the winners will be on display at the Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center.

All submissions must be received by Friday, December 5, 2014 with a signed entry form. Competition details and entry forms are available online at cov200.com/future-and-you/k-16-educational-programs/. Students need not live in or attend school in Covington.
