Applicants must display drive and dedication to the project throughout the school year. Prior woodworking experience is a plus, but not required.

Refuge looking for your best photos

The third annual Nature and Wildlife Contest is underway at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge.

Matted prints are being accepted through Oct. 4 in two themed categories: wildlife and landscapes/seascapes. Entries will also be judged in two age categories: adult and youth (under age 18).

To qualify, pictures must have been taken within the boundaries of one of the following refuges: Parker River, Great Bay, Wapack, Thacher Island, Rachel Carson, Great Meadows, Assabet River, Monomoy or Oxbow. Photographers can submit two prints, which must be no bigger than 8 inches by 10 inches. The application fee is $5.

The panel of judges will comprise refuge staff and experienced photographers, and winners will be announced during the annual Phabulous Photo Weekend, Oct. 18-20.

Hunt’s Photo will provide a $100 gift card to the “Best in Show” and a $50 gift card to the first-place winner in each category. The winning photos will be displayed in the refuge visitor center for the next year.
