2023 AHS R4 Photo Contest

Note from Marlene Harmon: Voting has been temporarily suspended because we realized we missed some photos in the presentations. An email will be sent to Region 4 members when the problem has been fixed. The presentations will be updated and reviewed by all to make sure no more photos were missed before voting will be turned on. Since all categories will be affected, we will start over with voting and a new deadline will be set. My apologies for the confusion. I will take steps next year to prevent this from happening again.

Winning photos will be published in the Fall 2023 issue of the Region 4 Newsletter.
