Our mission to document the stories and experiences of Thomas County during the COVID-19 pandemic continues as we launch a new academic competition for students designed to capture their perspectives on the pandemic and the ways it has changed their day-to-day lives.
We’re calling on all 5th through 12th grade students in Thomas County to pick up their cameras or cell phones and document their “new normal” through a photo essay competition. Students will be judged according to grade level in two divisions: Junior, 5th-8th grade, and Senior, 9th-12th grade.
The competition begins October 2 and students may choose to document the community through one of several themes. Completed projects will be accepted through December 4. This competition is open to students enrolled in virtual learning, face-to-face instruction, and homeschooling. Photos must be taken within Thomas County.
