Representative Wheeler Announces Winners of Veterans Photo Contest

State Represenative Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) congratulates the winning entries from her first annual Veterans and Active Service Member Photo Contest. Taking first place in the contest was photo #17 “A Jolt from Home,” and taking second place was photo #6 “Still Waiting for You Son.” The individuals who sent in those photos won $250 and $150 respectively. The third place winner was photo #7 “John and Molly.” The individual who submitted that photo won $100.

“In honor of Veterans Day this year I want to recognize our local servicemen and women by featuring their photos on my web site,” said Wheeler. “We had a tremendous response and I really enjoyed putting them together in a commemorative slide show.”

Photographs of veterans or active service members, along with photo captions, were accepted through Wheeler’s email, and all photos were put into a slideshow that is still posted here.

Citizens did the voting by email, and the winners were announced on November 11.
