June 24 is the deadline for Cream of the Crop photography contest

As the June 24 deadline quickly approaches, Illinois State Treasurer Michael Frerichs again encouraged young photographers to get out, explore and snap a few photos (while social distancing) to submit for the 2020 Cream of the Crop Photo Contest.

The eighth annual contest encourages young photographers to share their vision of agriculture in our state.

“We have received some great submissions but want to encourage more young photographers to snap a few pictures and send to us for our annual photo contest,” Frerichs said. “This is a fun way to showcase Illinois agriculture, explore local farms and see all the beauty Illinois has to offer.”
