Kim Murphy, Advisor of WSC PASO/Ag Club states, "The students do a great job of collecting the photos the Monday of the show and later that day setting up stands and photos.  They then work on the clean up on Wednesday afternoon.  They attend as much of the show as their class schedule will allow.  Of course we rely on the Camera Club here in town to line up judges for us every year as well as borrow the photo stands from them and without the sponsors, we wouldn't be able to have the nice cash prices and plaques to hand out either!  The 2013 Photo Contest brought in approximately 125 entries." Murphy would also like to say a special thanks to the sponsors who make this event possible year after year.

Photo contest sponsors are American State Bank & Trust, First International Bank & Trust, First National Bank & Trust, Floyd Miller from FM Sales , KXMD-TV, Western Cooperative Credit Union.
