Senator Vogel Seeking Local Photos for District Calendar

While admitting that he’s definitely biased on the issue, Senator Elder Vogel believes his 47th Senatorial District is one of the most scenic and picturesque areas of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and he’s looking for photos that capture the area’s spirit and beauty.

Senator Vogel is holding a photo contest in which the work of the winners will be featured in a 2016 “Scenes from the 47th Senatorial District” calendar.

Contestants can submit two photos per category of their favorite shots. The categories are: spring, summer, fall and winter.  The contest is open to all individuals, both children and adults, but photos must have been taken within the boundaries of the 47th District.  The contest will remain open for submissions until August 31.  Voting will take place in September with the winners to be announced in October.

“From rolling farms to bustling main streets, the picturesque vistas throughout the many boroughs and townships that make up my senate district are a photographer’s dream,” Senator Vogel said. “It’s that little old church you drive by each day or an eagle nesting above the river, the annual parade or a school sporting event. I want you to share the local sights and scenes that you capture with your 47th Senate District neighbors.”
