Each photo submitted will be considered for use on the website and entered into a draw for a chance to win Creekside Theatre show tickets for four.

“This is a great way for residents of all ages, businesses and visitors to Lake Country to get involved and really show us what makes our community special,” said Reyna Seabrook, corporate services manager. “As we work to improve our website, these photos will add a unique perspective that will showcase what it truly means to be part of our community.”

While the work to review and improve the web site will take place this fall and winter, citizens, visitors, students and businesses are invited to look through their camera lens and capture what they love best about Lake Country.

The district is accepting photos for the following categories:
