SOUTHERN EXPOSURES AWARD CEREMONY

Southern Exposures Youth Nature Photo Contest is one of several initiatives in support of The Valley Land Fund’s mission.

It provides a rare opportunity for the generation of tomorrow to learn the importance of conservation of a small but important piece of our planet, not to mention our way of life in South Texas. The images generated by Southern Exposures Youth Nature Photo Contest are used to educate the public about the wildlife and habitat of our region. On a more individual level, the experience these young photographers have in photographing this rich natural heritage will hopefully develop them as its future champions and conservators.
