July Photo Competition Winner!

Congratulations Allison Hopkins of Hinckley, Ohio

"Raise Your Voice"
   This photo was taken on a hike in Hocking Hills, Ohio. It is a great source of inspiration to me, because it symbolizes humanity and the need to reach for more. Better times and better life come when everyone reaches out - it symbolizes the growth for equality.

"When We Were Small" 
    This photo was taken near a small waterfall in Hocking Hills, Ohio. The kids were playing in the heart of the water, and it reminds me of simpler times when youth overlooked differences of people. It to me is the heart of equality. The innocence each of us wishes we could have is now blinded by the stereotypes society has etched in our minds.

Don't forget to submit to our August Competition, "Whom do you most admire in your community?"
