Mike's Photo Contest

Supervisor Mike Wasserman's 2019 Summer Photo Contest

"A picture is worth a thousand words"

So, what do you want to say? Each year, I hold a Summer Photo Contest and ask residents to send me a photo that captures why Santa Clara County is the best place to be in the summer. The inspiration is endless, with miles of hiking trails, photogenic pets, festivals, farmers markets, events, summer foods and backyard fun. I will proudly display the winning three photos in my office. Simply email your photo (1 per person) to photocontest@bos.sccgov.org along with your name, address, and where in our County you took the photo before the Friday, July 26, 2019 deadline. Read the Official Contest Rules.
