Theme is “Inspire preservation with beauty” Kingwood resident Bob Rehak, owner of Rehak Creative Services, is sponsoring the East End Park student photo contest. Any full-time student is invited to compete whether they attend public or private schools. The theme of the contest is “Inspire Preservation with Beauty”. When asked about the inspiration for the theme, Rehak stated, “This was an idea I borrowed from Ansel Adams, the famed photographer. He believed that the best way to preserve nature was to inspire people with its beauty. Hopefully, this contest will help young people appreciate the beauty of what they have, and encourage them to use their creativity to preserve it.” There are two age categories: 13 and under, and over 13 years. In each age category there will be a $250 prize for first place, $100 for second, three $50 honorable mentions totaling $1000. The only restrictions are that all photos must be taken within East End Park in Kingwood. (To find the park you must get on Kingwood Drive east until you can go no further. Kingwood Drive dead-ends into the parking lot for East End Park.) Also, no flora or fauna may be harmed in the taking of the photos and there is a limit of five photos per entrant. Photos may be in black and white or color. Judges for the contest will include Rehak, Mike Myers, Stephen McFarland, Scott Meyer and a representative to be named from Humble ISD.
