We are pleased to announce the 2020 'Let's Be County Proud' photo contest!

We've learned over the years that we benefit from a large number of skilled photographers in Saddle Hills County and we are once again holding a photo contest to showcase their work. 

As always, we want as many photos of people as possible since we use the submitted photos in our online promotion for the County through the County's website and social media accounts.

Don't Forget ... you must sign and submit a waiver for your submission(s) to be considered. You'll find the link at the bottom of this page.

Our categories focus on the people, geography and beauty of our County and our way of life.
