Summer on the Cuyahoga, by Amanda Vargo

To celebrate the Year of Clean Water, the Levin College of Urban Affairs is hosting a photo contest. This contest is open to all photographers. The theme is “What Water Means to You” and we are looking for images that convey the role that water plays in your life and the life of your city and region.
The winners of the contest will be chosen by a group of water-enthusiasts who are currently helping to organize a two-day conference in April 2016 entitled Water Resilient Cities Conference, focused on how cities in the Great Lakes Basin are planned and managed to increase water resilience to the disruptions of climate change.
The contest entries will be displayed on a special page on the Levin College web site and in the Thomas Campbell Gallery at the Levin College during the Water Resilient Cities conference. The top 5 photos will be considered winners and will be prominently displayed in the Gallery and featured at the conference. The Gallery is open to the public.
