Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander today launched the statewide photo contest for the 2013-2014 Official Manual, State of Missouri (Blue Book). The theme for this year’s contest is “Remembering Harry,” in honor of the only U.S. president from Missouri.

“Remembering Harry” photo entries should embody the wisdom of one of our greatest residents, President Harry S. Truman, in honor and celebration of his time in office and service to the public. Photos will be judged in one or more of the following three categories:

“Carry the battle to them.” — Photographs of sporting events and competitions in Missouri. 

“The most peaceful thing in the world is plowing a field.” — Photographs of Missouri agriculture and natural settings. 

“I don’t believe in little plans.” — Photographs of unique celebrations and parades in Missouri.

Entry forms and contest rules are available on the Secretary of State’s website: http://www.sos.mo.gov/photocontest. Entries may be submitted by email: publications@sos.mo.gov or by mail:

Missouri residents of all ages are invited to participate in the photo contest. Participants may submit any number of photographs, but each photo must be accompanied by its own entry form. All entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Monday, July 29, 2013. 

Photo contest winners will be chosen through a combination of online voting and selection by a committee within the Secretary of State’s office. The winning photos in each category will be published in the 2013-2014 edition of the Blue Book. All entries become the property of the Office of the Secretary of State and may be used in subsequent publications, with full credit given to the photographer. All submitted photographs will be added to the permanent collection of the Missouri State Archives, a division of Kander’s office.
