Youth (for individuals who are 17 years and below) 2. Adults (for those who are 18 years old and above). For participating in the contest, you are required to submit a photograph that depicts the scenery, wildlife, people, or flora at the Mill Bend Property. You can submit your photograph either via sending the mail, or digitally through google forms or an email. The contest is accepting photographs from June 1, 2021, to August 31, 2021.
