Good Idea From Our Neighbor

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Although not a Nevada project, California has an interesting project that marries education, government, and community service that is worth a look. California high school students are being invited to participate in LegiSchool's annual photo contest "California Through My Eyes."

To enter, students are asked to submit an 8x10-inch original photograph, along with an entry form and a 150-word typed essay explaining how their photo depicts what California means to them. The contest's first place winner will receive $100 and four-runners up will each receive $50.

Eligibility is limited to current high school students (in California). Entries must be postmarked by May 4. Complete details and entry forms are available at http://www.csus.edu/legischool/current/contests.html .

The photo contest is sponsored by LegiSchool, a civic education project of Sacramento State and the State Legislature, which is administered by the University's Center for California Studies.

For more information, contact the LegiSchool Project at 916-278-6906 or legischool@csus.edu.
