BARRE – The Barre Bicentennial Committee wants your best photos of the town and its residents for the upcoming 200th anniversary celebration of the town.

Barre is having a photo contest for youth (up to 18 years old) and adults. There are four categories: landscape, architecture, people and farm life.

Photos entered in the competition should be 8-by-10 prints. They need to be at the Town Hall by June 15-16. Judging will be on June 22, just ahead of the big bicentennial bash on June 29-July 1.

The best in show winner will receive $100. Other prizes include: first place, $40; second, $20; and third, $10.

The photos must be taken in Barre during 2017 or 2018, but aren’t limited to entries by Barre residents.
