ACTIVE WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
Over many years, through various initiatives, PCoB has strived to become active and supportive within the local community.
It has achieved this through:
Enthusiastic support of local charitable events
Publications of photography books
Annual Dale Westcott Memorial Award
DALE WESTCOTT MEMORIAL AWARD
The Dale Westcott Memorial Award is given annually by PCoB for the best nature photograph submitted by a local high school student. The award is in memory of Dale Westcott, one of the original members of the photography club and a life-long educator.
All area high schools may participate as well as high-school level students who are home-schooled. Each year the club looks forward to seeing the work of up-and-coming photographers. The judging takes place at the club’s April meeting and awards are presented at the May meeting. All winners receive ribbons.
Through the on-going support of Mrs. Dale (Barbara) Westcott and PCoB, the First Place winner is awarded $150, 2nd Place $100, 3rd Place $75, and two Honorable Mentions $50.
