There is no question we are surrounded by natural splendor within the boundaries of our school and community. Many of these images have, no doubt, been captured by residents, visitors, part-time community members, artists, and students. As a school community, we would like to showcase these collective images in the 2021-2022 Rondout Valley District Calendar. Therefore, the Rondout Valley Central School District encourages student, amateur, and professional photographers to share the striking images they have captured within the district’s boundaries in this year’s Photo Contest. No doubt each of us has taken good pictures, even if by accident. Why not gain some notoriety for your art form, immortalize your image on our district calendar, help showcase the spectacular area in which we live, and have fun doing so?

Suggested themes for entries:
• Grand Vistas & Sensational Skies
• Extraordinary Landscapes
• Soothing Water
• Gorgeous Flowers & Magnificent Plant Life
• Wonderful Wildlife in Natural Habitat
• Beautiful Birds or Dancing Butterflies
