Help decorate your Senate office

LANSING – Sen. John Proos announced today that he will be hosting an online photo contest where constituents can submit their favorite photographs of southwest Michigan to be displayed in the 21st District State Senate Office.

“I am asking the people for help in making their state Senate office feel more like home,” said Proos, R-St. Joseph. “With the natural beauty our corner of the state offers, and with spring finally here, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to allow residents to showcase what makes Michigan’s Great Southwest such a great place to live, work and play.”

Proos added: “Starting today, I will be hosting a photo contest on my Facebook page, where residents can submit their favorite photos of our community.  Eight winning photos will be selected to hang in the 21st District office.  I look forward to seeing the submissions.”

“The contest will end on May 27, 2011 at noon, so submit photos early.  The longer they’re posted on the site, the better chance they will have of being ‘Liked’ or voted on,” Proos said. “The eight photos with the most ‘Likes’ or votes will be selected as the winners. Also, the top vote or “Like” earner will become my Facebook profile picture for the entire month of June.”
