The Annual Washougal Youth Art Month's Photo Contest

Sponsored by the Washougal Arts and Cultural Alliance

Now is your chance to share what makes Washougal such a special place to live.  In conjunction with Washougal Youth Arts Month, WACA is inviting Washougal students in grades K-12 to grab their smartphone or digital camera and share through photography the beauty of Washougal… its rivers, people, places and things that are uniquely Washougal.  Have fun and be creative!

This work will be shared with the community through WACA’s website and Facebook pages.  Selected photos, submitted before March 2, will be included in a digital show at the WYAM Gallery March 5-7 at Washougal Town Square in downtown Washougal.
