2019 Photo Contest Winners - Why We Love Winter

A total of twenty-five photographers entered the contest this year. All of the entries were beautiful, creative images depicting why we love winter in the North Country.  Almost all of the images received at least one vote.  Many individuals spent a considerable amount of time before making their choice for best picture in each of the categories; 'Beauty of Winter' and "Fun in Winter'.  The difference between several of the winning photos and Honorable Mention was only by one vote.  Thanks to all the photographers who entered!!
