Minnetonka, Minn. – The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District (MCWD) is excited to announce its annual Earth Day Photo Contest opens on Monday, March 11. From Victoria to South Minneapolis and all of the communities in between, the MCWD is incredibly photogenic. There is tremendous beauty on and around the 129 lakes, eight major streams, and thousands of wetlands within the watershed, and the photo opportunities are endless!

All submitted photos must be taken within the MCWD and entered in one of two categories: landscape (including wildlife) or recreation. First place winners in each category will each receive a $100 gift certificate to The Great Frame Up in Minnetonka and will be featured in MCWD’s Year in Review publication, as well as on the District’s website, e-newsletter and social media. Second and third place winners will be featured on MCWD’s website, e-newsletter and social media. 

There are two ways to enter. The public can either submit photos on MCWD’s website or by tagging @minnehahacreekwd on Instagram and using the hashtag #mcwdearthday.

Submissions will be accepted through Sunday, April 7. The public can vote online for their favorite finalists from Monday, April 15 – Sunday, April 21, and winners will be announced on Monday, April 22.
