When Antelope Memorial Hospital needed new photos to display in their patients rooms, they knew the perfect way to get some great shots.
Merry Sprout, the director of nursing at AMH, said she remembered there was always great photography on display at the Antelope County Fair.
Antelope Memorial Hospital decided to conduct a photo contest, open only to 4-H members and hospital employees. The winners will get to have their photo enlarged and displayed in patients’ rooms at AMH for years to come.
“We knew the 4-H photography at the fair was always great, so we thought it would be a good way to showcase some of their work and get some nice photos for the hospital,” she said.
The entries were required to be a matted 8x10 photo that represented Nebraska. The eight 4-H winners were chosen by a selection committee and announced at the award ceremony on the last day of the fair: Kayton Zwingman of Elgin, Chloe Henn of Elgin, John Zwingman of Elgin, Kendra Carr of Neligh, Gracie Park of Ewing, Rachel Higgins of Neligh, Paxton Cleveland of Meadow Grove and Grady Drueke of Elgin.
AMH’s winning photos featured a variety of subjects, including boat docks, streams, Chimney Rock, a sunflower and wind towers, windmills and silhouetted trees at sunset.
