FRANKFORT – Lincoln-Way North High School’s Environmental Action Club recently announced the winners of its 4th annual Wild About Photography contest.
Jackie Williams won the community award and Michelle Zralka, a junior at Lincoln-Way North, won the student category.
Williams’ photo of lavender wild lupine was taken at the Interpretive Gardens located at the Frankfort Square Park District Center on Braemar Avenue.
Zralka’s photo of an ornamental white flower was taken right in her front yard garden. Michelle is a 3-year member of the Environmental Action Club at North and has volunteered for many outdoor projects.
Both photos now hang in the main corridor of Lincoln-Way North along with the previous years’ winners. The student award is named after Lincoln-Way North High School’s first principal Dr. Michael Gardner, a former biology teacher who recognizes the biological importance of native plants and animals.
The community award is named after Frankfort Square Park District executive director Jim Randall, the driving force behind natural areas in Frankfort Square. Lincoln-Way North science teacher and Environmental Action Club sponsor is Scott McCreary.
The deadline for the next Wild About Photography is Oct. 31. For more information or to learn more about the Lincoln-Way North Environmental Action Club, visit www.lw210.org/prairieproject/index.html
