Call for Photography Submissions by Western MA Youth for Group Exhibit

Call for Youth Photographers

Affording youth the opportunity to participate in a group exhibit like this can aid in the learning of their community, town and region by researching the background story of the images they capture while giving them a public venue to share their discoveries. Using local resources, information can be researched and gathered at their town library, historical society and historical museums, or by interviewing experts and elders in their community for a supporting narrative. This is a great occasion for young people to participate in community-based learning while strengthening their ties to their local community. – Deadline for entry: Dec 1, 2012

Western MA youth photographers ages 8-18 are invited to participate in an upcoming exhibit titled, Places We Live, Play & Learn: Narratives of Life by Western Massachusetts Youth Photographers.
