Augusta Fall Photo Contest Winners

Autumn is amazing!  Fall colors abound!  The two winning entries are proof of this year’s foliage display.  “An Augusta Tree,” taken by Rhia Wolf of Pacific, MO took first place. “Augusta Fall Colors” by Autumn Allen of Augusta, MO was the runner up.  Congratulations to both!

If you wish to view the photos in color, check out the website:  The pictures are also on display at the Augusta Library and in the Cranberry Cottage shop.

Another awesome set of prizes included $25.00 gift certificates from both donors.  Rhia received the prize to any Augusta business given by the Town of Augusta.  Autumn’s prize was provided by Cranberry Cottage Home Décor.

Thank you to all of the photographers who took the time to “take your best shot,” print out a photograph, fill out the entry form from the website or from a place around Town, and then mail it in by the deadline.  The mailing address:  “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest,  PO Box 42,  Augusta, MO 63332.

2019 will include at least two “Best of Augusta” Photo Contests.  The ever popular Kids’ Contest will continue in the fall.  A teen and adult contest will be coming in the spring.  Check the Town website and the Boone Country Connection for further details.
