At the suggestion of Charlie Burke,  PSA immediate past president, Coordinator/co-chairman of the Youth Photography Division of the Boston Flower Show, I’m sending you the invitation to participate in the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Youth Photography Show  at the 2018 Boston Flower Show, Seaport World Trade Center.The theme is “Savor Nature” and the schedule is attached. Entries are open now, and close Feb 1st. 2018.

It would be very helpful if the member clubs of NECCC would share this schedule with their youth groups… The contest will be juried, with the 24 finalists being displayed at the Flower Show.

Ever gratefully,
Arabella Dane, contest coordinator,
PSA member, member of GLCC and LRCC NH
