Lisle Park District announces winning photos
Lisle Park District recently honored the top finishers in its photography contest "50 Years of Fun" celebrating the district's 50th anniversary in 2017.
Participants were asked to submit photos taken at any time over the past 50 years featuring district parks, facilities, events or programs.
Janie Gibbs won first place for her photograph, "Patience of Nature," taken on a winter day in Community Park. Her photo is now on display in the lobby at the Lisle Park District Recreation Center, 1925 Ohio St.
Second place went to Owen McConville for his colorful photograph titled "Pollination" capturing a bee hard at work in Community Park. Third place went to Madison Barma for "Flying High" at the Schiesher Elementary School playground. And Susan Lonergan captured honorable mention for catching a moment of pure joy during the "Summer of 1988" at Sea Lion Aquatic Park.
All four photographs can be seen in the district's summer brochure and on its website at lisleparkdistrict.org/photographycontest.
The park district is sponsoring another photo contest this year and accepting entries through Oct. 1. All photos must be taken at district parks, facilities, events or programs. For details, visit lisleparkdistrict.org/photographycontest.
