7102 YsEXFc.tmp Our mission is to develop a love for taking pictures, supplying tips for excellent photos, and showcasing our unique Town of Augusta.

                    The new year of 2022 brings a new focus on the KIDS’ “BEST OF AUGUSTA” PHOTO CONTEST.  Kids, 12 and under, submit their individual photographs with the assistance of parents or other adults.  The only requirement is that the photos are taken in the Town of Augusta.  The Augusta Elementary art teacher promotes the annual photo contest at the beginning of the school year.  

                     All entries from all kids 12 and under are accepted.  Parents, or other relatives, encourage kids you know to participate.  There’s time to meet the deadline!
