Va. parks promoting photo contest

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A week’s stay in a cabin or campsite is up for grabs in a photo contest sponsored by the Virginia State Parks system.

The object of the competition, called “Treasure the Moments,” is for state park visitors to capture locations, scenic views or other attractions. The contest continues through Aug. 13.

The grand prize image wins the photographer a week for free in a cabin or campsite. Other prizes include two nights in a cabin, three nights of camping and park passes.

Virginia has 36 state parks.
