Augusta Photo Contest "New and Old" Winners

Congratulations to the May 2021 “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest winners:  Marilyn Kluesner of Marthasville and A. Lee Kelley from the Augusta area.

Kluesner’s First Place photo, “Augusta Glory,” features the American flag by Augusta Winery.  Kelley’s Runner Up photograph, “Ancient Augusta Art,” focuses on an arrowhead artifact.

New and old!  These winning photographs contrast the current culture of the all-American designated viticultural wine area with the past native American lifestyle.  

Augusta businesses donate the Photo Contest prizes.  Gift certificates for this contest were from Augusta Winery for wine chocolate pairings and gift certificates from a distributor of Jordan Essentials.  Thank you to the local businesses for providing incentives for the “Best of Augusta” Photo Contest.

The next competitive contest for kids 12 and under is coming up in September.  Further details will be on the Town website at www.townofaugustamo.org.  Kids, start preparing to take your best shot!
