Entries encouraged for SYV Kids Photography Contest 

Staff Report

The Santa Ynez Valley Star wants to highlight our amazing local kids that are out and about in the community and celebrating milestones in their lives. Since COVID-19 is taking a toll on mental health, hopefully this will bring a smile to people’s faces knowing that our kids are not letting COVID-19 get them down and out! We can still have fun, even being socially distant! 

Students at Dunn School celebrated their birthdays for the month of February with a special doughnut treat from God’s Country Provisions in Buellton. Happy Birthday, kids!

Send us your images to news@santaynezvalleystar.com! Include names, ages, school and/or community group! 

Don’t forget we are doing our first annual SYV Kids Photography Contest! Any student in the Santa Ynez Valley is eligible to apply. The theme is “Literature,” so take a favorite piece of literature and send us something that captures that essence. Email your images to news@santaynezvalleystar.com. Three winners will be chosen to receive a virtual pass to the 2021 NatureTrack Film Festival and a Grand Prize winner will get a family pass for the 2022 NatureTrack Film Festival (in-person) AND a $100 cash prize from the Star! 

Deadline has now been extended and we will feature in our April A issue of the Star. Deadline is March 17.
