Ripple Effects Photo Contest

To mark Earth Day 2022 and the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, the 2nd annual Ripple Effects Photo Contest is asking students in our community, K-12th grade, to capture images of what clean and healthy waters in Kentuckiana mean to them. What is most beautiful about the waterways in our community? What water-related problems do we need to address?

Cash prizes will be awarded in the following age categories: kindergarten through 2nd grade; 3rd through 5th grade, middle school, and high school.

Photo submissions are due by June 10 (one photo per student). Visit to register.
