Through the month of August, the FDL Public Library's Langdon Divers Gallery will feature a virtual exhibit of the library’s sixth annual Teen Photo Contest on the gallery’s Facebook page,

Included in the exhibit are all 119 entries submitted by teens across the county as well as the four winners. Judges awarded the grand prize – a $250 gift card – to Kristen Heap for her dramatic shot of winter waves splashing on an icy shore, pictured at left.

The winners – grand prize plus one winner in each of the three categories – are:

  • Grand prize (pictured at left): Kristen Heap, 14, grade 9, Fond du Lac High School
  • Anything Goes: Alix Jahnke, 12, grade 7, Faith Lutheran School
  • Street: Briah Krueger, 13, grade 6, homeschool
  • Weather: Ayden Fowler, 15, grade 9, Horace Mann High School

The four winners received their photographs professionally framed, courtesy Gallery & Frame Shop. Contest judges were Lauren Herlache of Signarama and professional photographers Casey French and Casey Fiebig.
