Iowa Architectural Foundation invites all Iowa students in grades seventh through 12th to enter the photography contest “Snapshot Iowa.”

Photographs are to showcase windows in Iowa architecture.

Photos should be black and white, 8 by 10 inches, printed on photo paper and unmounted.

One winner from each group will earn a $100 cash prize: seventh through ninth grades and 10th through 12th grades.

Official entry forms and guidelines have been distributed to the Clarke, Murray and home-school teachers. Entries must be sent by the student and received by March 21. Additional details are included on the official entry form.

“By encouraging students to photograph a favorite building in town, they will begin to look at and appreciate the architecture around them,” said Mary Ellen Kimball, project chair for the Clarke Area Arts Council.

The “Snapshot Iowa” contest is sponsored statewide by the Iowa Architecture Foundation and Homes Murphy.

Local project supporters include the Clarke Area Arts Council and the Kimball Family Foundation. Additional information is available from Deb Jurshak at 641-447-2430 and Mary Ellen Kimball at 641-342-4272.

Clarke Area Arts Council joins others in the community interested in architecture. Molly Naumann, architectural historian, has been an Artist-in-the-Schools six times, increasing awareness of our area’s architecture and it’s importance in history, economy and lifestyle.
