Photos sought for W.Va. wildflower calendar

CHARLESTON (AP) — West Virginia officials are seeking pictures of wildflower for use in the latest “Roadsides in Bloom” calendar.

The state departments of Environmental Protection and Transportation are sponsoring the 10th annual West Virginia Operation Wildflower calendar photo contest.

Officials say those wishing to submit entries have until Oct. 1.

Judges will then select 12 photos to represent the months of the year, and a grand prize winner’s photo will be put on the calendar cover.

The state’s Operation Wildflower beautification program includes more than 250 acres of wildflowers grown on West Virginia’s roadways.

The calendar is a joint effort between the Department of Environmental Protection and the state Division of Highways.

More information about the calendar or the rules of the contest is available through the Adopt-A-Highway Program at 800-322-5530.
