PFA Senior Wins Photo Contest

Kimberly Guevara had no idea that she would be taking home a photography prize only one year after taking her first digital photography class, but that is exactly what happened to this PFA Senior. She submitted her silhouetted river scene as a Youth Entry in the “This Land is Your Land” segment of the 2014 Essex National Heritage Area Photo Contest and received First Place.
 
Kimberly said she enjoys taking pictures because a photo is “ a memory you can hold and carry with you”. Her winning photo was a spur of the moment shot inspired by the Merrimack River at sunset. She hopes people will think about their roots and remember where they came from while looking at the photo.
 
Kimberly will take part in a ceremony and receive her award on January 28th and all winning photos will be on display at the National Park Visitor Center in Salem and Merrimack Valley Planning Commission in Haverhill for the next year.
 
Congratulations, Kimberly!
