Placeholder Image

State Sen. Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) has invited local residents to share their favorite pictures capturing local summer events or scenic regional landscapes for consideration.

Entries can be submitted via email to, along with the photographer’s name, address, phone number, and a brief description of when and where the picture was taken.

Photos will be shared in a special “Summer Fun” photo album on the Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) Facebook page. Each “like” that a photograph receives will count as one vote. At the end of the contest, the photograph with the most “likes” will be featured on Shilling’s official Senate website, her Facebook page, and printed for display in her Capitol office.

The deadline for submitting photos is Aug. 2 at 5 p.m. The voting window will close Aug. 8 at 5 p.m., and the winner will be announced Aug. 9.


• Limit submissions to no more than three photos per person.

• Only photographs taken in the 32nd Senate District (La Crosse, Vernon, and Crawford counties, and the southern half of Monroe County) will be allowed.

• Pictures of a political or offensive nature will not be accepted.

• Individuals may vote for as many photographs as they would like in the Facebook album.
