One of my big goals with Michigan in Pictures is to share the beauty of our state, and I’ve been happy to discover so many other people like Kathy who feel the same love for Michigan and want to share it too.

It’s no secret, however, that our state’s economic and political environment is less than beautiful. An organization that I’ve been working with lately, The Center for Michigan, is striving to aid in in the transformation of Michigan’s business, economic, political and cultural climate. To that end (they write):

We’re launching the Envision Michigan Story Competition. Submit your best shots and you can win some of $30,000 in college scholarships, $5,000 in great Michigan vacation packages, or weekly shopping sprees to Meijer.

Entering is very easy. Just pick your best photo and explain it in a 350-word caption. For your best chance to win, make sure your caption explains what you love about our state, what you want to change about our state, your best vision for Michigan’s future.

You can also enter essays and videos – click for all the details on the Envision Michigan Competition and please share this around with everyone you know!

If you’re a Flickr user, you can also add your photos to their Michigan photos group.
